DFDS' freight business is in full throttle and makes up most of the ferry and logistics operator's revenue growth of 51 percent to DKK 4.2 billion in the second quarter.

The operating result (EBITDA) came out to DKK 897 millon (USD 141.9 million), improving by 77 percent compared to the same quarter last year, which was strongly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and ensuing travel restrictions. For this reason, DFDS compares the second quarterly development against 2019, a normal operating year.
