DFDS CEO: Gothenburg is crucial to DFDS

Gothenburg as the key hub of Scandinavia is central to DFDS, and the company will maintain its leadership position in the port through major investments in the years to come, says the shipping company’s CEO in an interview with ShippingWatch.

The Port of Gothenburg and the Swedish market as a whole is DFDS cornerstone, serving as a key hub in Scandinavia and a central point of export for the large Swedish market, and the Danish shipping company intends to maintain its presence as well as a significant investment program in the major port, says DFDS CEO Niels Smedegaard to ShippingWatch.

“Gothenburg is the backbone of what we do. We’ll always be there, and we’ll be the best on that market. Sweden is very interesting to us, because of its amazing industries and amazing business people. Compared to Denmark and Norway, there’s a lot more production the Sweden, and that’s important to us. This includes customers such as Volvo and Stora Enso. On the short, medium-long, and long term, this is extremely attractive to us and to the many customers we service out of Sweden and out into Europe,” says Niels Smedegaard.
