Ferries Scandlines evacuated in Denmark, Germany and Sweden after telephone threat

Ferry operator Scandlines evacuated all its ferries in the Danish ports Rødby, Gedser en Helsingør, places Puttgarden and Rostock in Germany, as well as the Swedish Helsingborg after a telephone threat. The ferry traffic between Denmark, Germany and Sweden was suspended as well.

Later in the afternoon, Scandlines was able to sail again. The timetable is disregarded for the rest of the day. This resulted in a delay in deliveries where Mainfreight is not able to meet the general lead times.

We appreciate your understanding, our teams are focussed on delivering the best possible service and will deliver the shipments at their destinations as soon as possible.
