Back to All Events


This year DFDS, northern Europe’s largest integrated shipping and logistics company, celebrates its 150th anniversary. Instead of looking back through history, we would like to give an insight into the future tonnage strategy of the ship owner. The DFDS Newbuilding and Major Conversions department will present ongoing projects, how to implement best practice in the projects, and touch upon geographical and regulatory challenges.
