Scandlines is a modern and visionary shipping company that combines classic transport and high service to our customers and partners. At Scandlines, we have a green vision for the future and are world-renowned for our innovation and development of the world’s largest hybrid ferries.

About Scandlines:

At Scandlines, we have a proud culture and a maritime history that dates to 1872. We are an international group that operates in Denmark and Germany on the routes between Rødby-Puttgarden and Gedser-Rostock with 7 tailor-made ferries. We have over 1,500 skilled employees with a wide diversity across national borders, culture, and education.

Scandlines has a clear vision – green ferry operations. At the same time, we support the UN’s global goals for sustainable development in five areas. To strengthen our green agenda, we have committed the entire organization to backing five of the UN’s global goals for sustainable development. The goals we focus on are ‘Good health and well-being’, ‘Responsible consumption and production’, ‘Climate action’, ‘Life below water’ and ‘Life on land’. Scandlines supports gender equality.

Four of our six hybrid ferries operate on the Puttgarden-Rødby route. These four ferries were built in 1997 and converted to hybrid ferries in 2013/14. All four are double-ended RoRo ferries.

Our newest ferries from 2016 operate between Rostock and Gedser. The ferries were built as hybrid ferries in order to reduce CO2-emissions. The vessels are tailor-made for the route to optimize for shallow waters. Thus, the shape of the ship hull contributes to lowering fuel consumption. In 2020, we installed a rotor sail on one of the ferries in order to make it even more environmentally friendly.

Apart from the six hybrid ferries, we have a freight ferry. It operates primarily on the Puttgarden-Rødby route, but also acts as a replacement ferry on the Rostock-Gedser route.

Scandlines owns the world’s largest fleet of hybrid ferries, and we are proud that they bear our logo. The ferries operate between Germany and Denmark from the German harbours of Puttgarden and Rostock and the Danish harbours of Rødby and Gedser.
