DFDS to sell duty free alcohol and tobacco to increase revenue after Brexit

DFDS expects to sell duty free items on the English Channel from 2021 to compensate for Brexit. "Unfortunately for the public health, this will involve some of the best selling items such as tobacco and alcohol," CEO Torben Carlsen tells ShippingWatch.

Duty free sale of products such as alcohol and tobacco on the DFDS ferries as well as help to freight customers in terms of handling customs on goods to and from the British market.

These are some of the initiatives that will in 2021 bring in new revenue for DFDS once the so-called Brexit transitional period between Great Britain and the EU expires at the end of the year, DFDS Chief Executive Officer Torben Carlsen tells ShippingWatch.
