DFDS: August volume report: freight growth continued in most regions

DFDS reports monthly ferry volumes for freight and passengers to provide insight into the development of volume trends in DFDS’ European route network.

Ferry – freight: Total volumes in August 2021 were 0.6% above 2020. Net adjustments for structural route changes reduced growth 1.9 ppt to -1.3%.

The volumes transported in August 2021 by the Baltic Sea and Mediterranean business units were well above August 2020. North Sea volumes were on level as automotive volumes were negatively impacted by the current global supply chain bottlenecks. Volumes for each of the three business units were above 2019.

Following a decrease in the total Channel market, and re-introduction of a ferry taken out of the market in 2020 by an operator, the Channel volumes were below 2020, adjusted for the Dunkirk-Rosslare route opened at the beginning of 2021.

Ferry – passenger: The total number of passengers in August 2021 was 38.9% below 2020 reflecting a continued negative impact from travel restrictions as well as a temporary easing of restrictions in the first half of August 2020. Baltic Sea’s passenger volumes continued to be above 2020.
