Danish shipping and logistics company DFDS has taken delivery of the third of six ro-ro ferries being built by Jinling Shipyard in China.

According to designer Knud E Hansen the vessel was officially delivered just under a year after construction works on the vessel started in November 2018.

The vessel, which is understood will be named Hollandia Seaways, began sea trials in August this year. It is not yet known on which route it will initially be deployed - a decision is thought to depend on the outcome of the Brexit negotiations.

The first in this series of large freight ferries was delivered in February 2029, while the second was delivered in early May. These are the largest freight ferries in the DFDS fleet.

Construction of the fourth unit started with a keel-laying ceremony in March this year.
