Rebranded U.N. Ro-Ro to introduce ‘Seaways’ names
U.N. Ro-Ro will be rebranded DFDS, a process that will take several years. The first ship to display the name and the livery of the new owners is the lengthened UN KARADENIZ. DFDS has also announced that all twelve ships in the U.N. Ro-Ro fleet will be renamed after Turkish UNESCO world heritage sites. In line with the rest of the DFDS fleet, the name will be followed by the Seaways suffix.Upload News
