[ June 11, 2021   //   ]

DFDS said that its total ferry freight volumes in May 2021 was up 31.2% over 2020, or 28% after adjustments for structural route changes. It said that the “extraordinary” growth reflected a recovery from the significant volume reductions in May 2020 caused by Covid-19 related lockdowns. Volumes in May 2021 were 7.4% above May 2019 adjusted for structural route changes.

In contrast, the total number of passengers in May 2021 was 27.3% below 2020 reflecting the continued tight travel restrictions.
