Today, DFDS and the Joint Movement and Transport Organisation (JMTO), which provides strategic transport for Danish military missions, have entered into a new agreement. According to the agreement, a total of seven freight ferries (ro-ro) will be made available for the maritime transport of military materiel and equipment in connection with NATO preparedness, participation in military exercises and operations, and humanitarian crises.
The agreement, concluded after the task went out to public tender, replaces an earlier agreement between the Danish Defence and DFDS, and runs for six years.
On a day-to-day basis, the ferries will be deployed on DFDS’ routes, and will be made available to the military when and to the extent requested by the Danish Defence.
The agreement is also linked to the ARK project, a Danish-German cooperation project, which ensures access to and availability of maritime transport capacity for Danish and German defences in accordance with the nations’ own obligations to NATO.
