DFDS Declare 79 Redundancies At Dover

Ferry operator DFDS has announced there will be 79 redundancies at its Dover operation. The ferry company had previously announced that there would be a number of job losses due to a reduction in services.

69 jobs will be sea going staff while ten jobs will go from shore side departments including its Whitfield office and at the terminal control building, a port based support team for dockside operations.

Kasper Moos, VP and Head of DFDS’ routes on the English Channel said: “On 29th June, DFDS announced several cost reductions measures to adapt to the new market conditions brought about by the Covid-9 Pandemic. DFDS anticipated that this would potentially impact about 650 colleagues across the DFDS organisation.Following this, we are today announcing the start of a consultation process in Dover and France that will unfortunately lead to a number of employees leaving the business.”

We very much regret that it has come to this

The Danish international shipping and logistics company has a fleet of six ships sailing from Dover to Calais and Dunkirk.

The News of redundancies followings after rival company P&O announced that 614 staff at P&O Ferries were made redundant, as travel companies suffer due to the pandemic.
