Links kept up by Scandlines
Scandlines continues to operate on schedule on its Puttgarden-Rødby and Rostock-Gedser routes between Germany and Denmark. Although Denmark closed its frontier with Germany on 12 March and Germany followed suit in the other direction on 16 March, freight traffic is set to continue.
Companies shall not be prevented from receiving deliveries from abroad or exporting goods abroad.

With more than 43,000 sailings distributed over eight ferries, Scandlines shipped a total of around 700,000 units of cargo on these routes in 2018. (mw)
