The DFDS routes to and from Sweden could be impacted by a conflict between the Swedish ports and the port workers. The negotiations between the ports and the port and transportation workers – about a new collective agreement – have broken down, which has resulted in the unions saying no to “overtime and the hiring of people” in the ports. According to the DFDS Update Weekly, brokers have been appointed, but if a solution is not reached, the conflict will come into effect in all Swedish ports, starting midnight, September 27th.
“Work is underway to find a solution, and we remain optimistic, but if the warning comes into effect it could also impact the loading and unloading of our ships. Ävlsborg ro-ro and DFDS will meet today to plan how to handle the situation, to limit the conflict’s impact on our customers,” says Kell Robdrup, senior vice president of DFDS’s North Sea Business Unit.
