DFDS to end Harwich to Esbjerg route in September
5:20pm Tuesday 29th April 2014 in News
MORE than 130 jobs will be affected when a ferry operator stops its crossings from Harwich to Denmark later this year.
DFDS Seaways, which sails to Esbjerg, has been struggling with high costs, loss of passengers and freight being switched to road transport.
From January next year ferry operators will be required to use low-sulphur oil as part of a new EU directive making the cost of running the route too high.
