DFDS opens logistics office in Lithuania

DFDS has now gone ashore in Lithuania with a logistics office in Vilnius. Main business will be efficient transport of part and full loads between Lithuania and the UK as well as other countries.

“In partnership with DFDS logistics office in Germany, we are in the process of setting up an efficient service to and from Germany. It will enable us to accept goods in Hamburg that can be in Klaipeda on Sunday and be delivered to our Lithuanian customers on Monday, “says Lars Thorsen, Head of DFDS’ logistics business in Lithuania.

After the summer, he even expects to be able to offer customers transports to and from Italy, based on DFDS’ well established road and rail services between Northern Europe and Italy.

The group also receives goods that are delivered to Vilnius cross-docking center to be transshipped for further transport to Russia and Kazakhstan. Moreover, DFDS already has a number of transports between Sweden and Russia with goods for a Volvo assembly plant in Russia, as well as goods such as Ikea and construction

“Our main service will be transport of part-loads. However, at DFDS we do have the equipment and expertise in moving full loads as well as various types of special and oversized cargoes. In short, when it comes to servicing our customers, nothing will be too small and nothing too big,” says Mindaugas Ramaška, Commercial manager of DFDS’ logistics business in Lithuania.
