DFDS, Northern Europe’s largest integrated shipping and logistics company, is launching a new rail freight service between Séte and Calais. As of 17 May, the new rail service will connect London to Yalova.

According to raillynews, with this new line, DFDS, which provides a complete rail and sea transportation between London and Istanbul, will offer the shortest journey time between Turkey and England with 7 days.

Expanding DFDS’ existing service network between the UK and Europe, this new line will respond to increasing demand.

The trains will be arranged twice a week, reciprocally between Calais and Séte.

The new line is the latest round of investments by DFDS to develop new unaccompanied cargo services that opened last June and can carry more than 100 trailers or containers at a time from Sheerness to Calais.
