DFDS to take over NorfolkLine

DFDS Seaways have announced that they have taken a substantial stake in NorfolkLine Ferries, effectively giving them ownership of the company. This seems to us a sensible move for both companies. It will create the largest ferry operator in Northern Europe, with a combined fleet of 73 ships - 2 of Norfolk Lines' ships are being disposed of.

The deal makes sense because Norfolk Lines is strong on the Irish Sea and operates a successful route from Dover to Dunkirk, whereas DFDS is strong on North Sea ferry crossings from the UK to Belgium, the Netherlands and Denmark.

Drive-Alive works with both DFDS and Norfolk Line so we look forward to continuing to offer these ferry crossings to our customers. We will keep you informed of any further developments.
