DFDS Update : Lashing requirements on Paldiski - Kapellskär / Paldiski - Hanko Routes

We would like to remind about the importance of securing cargo, especially during this time of the year with heavy weather conditions over the autumn/winter period on the Baltic Sea.

Road vehicles / trailers that are intended to be shipped on ro-ro vessels should be equipped with sufficient number of lashing points designed for securing of the road vehicles / trailers to the ship. Please find minimum number of lashings required for road vehicles / trailers below.

We would also like to remind that it is essential for the goods to be properly stowed and secured inside the road vehicles / trailers according to guidelines and standards which can be found in the Green Card accompanying our Conditions of Carriage to safeguard the goods and the road vehicles against natural and man-made circumstances that may arise during the carriage.

Please note that failure to comply with the aforementioned requirements may result in refusal to accept such road vehicles / trailers for shipment as well as no acceptance of liability by the Carrier for the loss or damage to the cargo arising or resulting from such failure.

More information about vehicles lashing can be found HERE.
