AGREEMENT REACHED BETWEEN PARTIES ON CHANNEL

DENMARK


Copenhagen, 2015-08-31 20:55 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Announcement no. 71

 

This evening, an agreement between the staff representatives of SCOP-SeaFrance, Eurotunnel and DFDS, concerning the release of the Channel ferries Rodin and Berlioz, was reached with the assistance of the French transport minister.

As part of the agreement, DFDS is committing to the employment of 202 former SCOP-Seafrance employees in its French organization.

Contingent on the time of delivery from Eurotunnel, the ferries are expected to be deployed during Q4 2015 on Dover-Calais together with Calais Seaways and the route will therefore be operated by three ferries compared to two ferries today. Malo Seaways will be deployed elsewhere in the network.

DFDS will thereafter operate a total of six ferries out of Dover to Calais and Dunkirk respectively, with three ferries on each route. The additional frequency and capacity of the future operational set-up will enhance DFDS’ offering to both freight customers and passengers.
