ForSea operates the ferry service between Helsingborg and Helsingör with almost 50,000 departures per year in one of northern Europe’s busiest waters. The ferry service is an indispensable part of the infrastructure which contributes to people meeting and the region developing. During 2018 more than 7 million passengers, 1.3 million private cars, 450,000 lorries and 16,000 buses were transported safely and securely across the Sound. The ferry line is a ”floating bridge”, with several departures every hour, round the clock. Besides frequency of services and reliability, the strongest competitive advantages are the capacity, the sustainable transportation and the experiences on board.
