Ferry operator DFDS has reported another record year for 2017, with the company’s annual results showing an operating profit of £321 million last year.


Despite ongoing uncertainty caused by Brexit, the company’s operations across Europe continued to grow into the fourth quarter, with a positive consensus looking into 2018 based on recent key indicators.

“Overall, North Sea freight volumes grew by 7% in 2017. In spite of the Brexit issue, and the delayed Brexit agreement between the UK and EU, we see that the UK’s economy is still growing, albeit at a slower pace,” says Niels Smedegaard, CEO & President, DFDS.
