The Danish shipping group DFDS A/S said on Tuesday (15 August) that it has agreed to acquire the container shipping company Norfolk Line Containers BV from Norfolk Holdings BV for an undisclosed sum.

Norfolk Holdings is a Dutch subsidiary of the Danish multi-sector group AP Maersk-Moller A/S.

Norfolk Line Containers operates six chartered lift-on/lift-off (lo/lo) container ships between Rotterdam and Irish ports.

The acquisition strengthens DFDS Tor Line's position in the lo/lo container shipping segment.
