DFDS Seaways operates a cargo ferry between Brevik (Norway) and Immingham (England). Apparently, they do take drivers of private cars, for example, see The Independent. However, is it possible to book transfer on this ferry when not travelling with any freight? I don't see this freighter advertised on the usual freighter travel websites.

    @pnuts I saw that link, but it is not obvious to me if those passengers are only considered when accompanying their vehicle, or also when travelling without any freight.

    @pnuts True, I could ask them directly and post the answer here.

1 Answer 1


I called the passenger information number in Immingham and spoke with a live agent...

  1. Foot passengers who do not have a vehicle will not be permitted to board on either side;
  2. Passengers on push bikes may be permitted to board in the Immingham, unclear for the Brevik side;
  3. The entry point in Immingham is covered by the same Statutory Instrument governing airlines, so the UK Border Force will be alerted from Brevik if they are carrying non-EEA passengers.
