U.N. Ro-Ro owner Danish DFDS to keep investing in Turkey
PublishedJune 8, 2018
The Danish shipping company DFDS acquired 98.8 percent of the shares in Turkish freight shipping operator U.N. Ro-Ro for 950 million euros in this April.
Danish shipping and logistics giant DFDS acquired 98.8 percent of Turkey's Ro-Ro for 950 million euros in April. The investment shows the trust in the Turkish logistics sector as the country is increasingly becoming a transfer hub for regional markets
Leading Danish shipping and logistics company DFDS signed a share purchase agreement in April 2018 with U.N. Ro-Ro, a leading operator in intermodal transportation in Turkey. Following the completion of the acquisition, DFDS shipping division Executive Vice President Peder Gellert Pedersen emphasized confidence in the Turkish market and highlighted DFDS's intention to continue investing in both U.N. Ro-Ro and in Turkey.
Having recently been acquired by DFDS, U.N. Ro-Ro, a leading ro-ro company operating in the intermodal transportation sector, is expanding its operations. In April 2018, DFDS signed an agreement to acquire 98.8 percent of U.N. Ro-Ro from Roro Investments Sarl owned by Actera Group and Esas Holding for 950 million euros.
Pedersen said in a meeting Friday: "We have confidence in both the Turkish economy and in U.N. Ro-Ro's strong presence in the sector. We believe there are opportunities in creating new activities and jobs in Turkey. Turkey has strong trade relations with its largest trade partners in the EU. As globalization supports growth in international trade, Turkey, as the region's logistic hub, will become even more important."
DFDS's investment in U.N. Ro-Ro demonstrates the strength of Turkey's logistic infrastructure and the fact that Turkey will become increasingly important as an export hub for regional markets, the vice president added.
Pedersen remarked that DFDS's know-how, experience and financial strength will help U.N. Ro-Ro increase the competitiveness of Turkish exporters as well as international road transportation and logistics operators.
"Turkey's largest Ro-Ro operator, U.N. Ro-Ro, will reinforce DFDS's operations in the Baltic Sea, the North Sea and the English Channel. U.N. Ro-Ro's strong network in the Mediterranean and DFDS' wide network in Northern Europe, especially the U.K., Scandinavian countries, Benelux countries and Germany, will create an unprecedented synergy once combined together," Pederson concluded.
U.N Ro-Ro CEO Selçuk Boztepe said: "By combining DFDS's network with U.N. Ro-Ro's network we will extend both ro-ro and intermodal lines to reach new customers and creating new opportunities. U.N. Ro-Ro will continue its growth with new investments. We will lengthen our two ro-ro ships in August and December 2018 to increase our capacity and efficiency."
Boztepe stressed that there will be great opportunities in a combined U.N. Ro-Ro/DFDS fleet with the flexibility to change ships between areas to ensure the right tonnage in the right market, including DFDS's recently ordered series of very large ro-ro ships of each 6,700 lane-meters.
He announced that new destinations will soon be added to U.N. Ro-Ro's transportation network. Patras Port in Greece is among those destinations. "Patras Port will be a valuable addition to our transportation services between Turkey to Greece and Greece to Europe. With the power of DFDS, U.N. Ro-Ro will become one of the key players in the sector in the North African, Black Sea and Middle Eastern regions," he said.
Following DFDS and U.N. Ro-Ro's integration, the entire fleet of U.N. Ro-Ro ships will continue flying Turkish flags en route.

INVESTMENT IN ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE FOR MEDITERRANEAN ROUTE NETWORK

investment in environmental
compliance for Mediterranean route network
DFDS will in 2019 invest DKK 300m to install scrubbers on 12 freight ferries deployed on freight routes in the Mediterranean between Turkey, Italy, Greece and France. The investment will ensure compliance with the new global rules that from 2020 aims to reduce sulphur emissions through limiting sulphur content in marine fuel oil to 0.5% or through other means, such as scrubbers, with at least a similar environmental effect.
The investment decision is based on the scrubber strategy that was applied in 2015 for the transition to the 0.1% sulphur content limit for DFDS' ferry route network in northern Europe. This strategy has proven to be a success from both an environmental, operational and business perspective.
"We are happy to already now start preparing for complying with the new limit on sulphur content in emissions in the Mediterranean. This will bring environmental benefits for all. By applying DFDS' extensive experience of procuring, installing and operating scrubber systems we are achieving both operational and financial synergies," says Niels Smedegaard, CEO of DFDS.
In line with DFDS' CSR policy and to comply with IMO's (International Maritime Organisation) upcoming regulation, hybrid scrubbers were chosen as the optimal solution for the fleet in the Mediterranean. The use of scrubbers will bring health and environmental benefits, particularly for people living close to ports and coastlines.
The 12 scrubbers will be supplied by ME Production, a Danish developer and manufacturer of customised emission reduction systems for marine applications, that DFDS has cooperated with previously.
