Europe is growing together, and shipping company Förde Reederei Seetouristik (FRS) is one of those ventures that have recognised this as an opportunity to develop new business activities beyond home waters.

In recent years, FRS has grown from a regional passenger ferry operator to an internationally active business group with about 30 vessels and approximately 1000 employees. Every year, FRS carries 5.4 million passengers and 1.3 million vehicles in total. The FRS success story as a short route ferry operator goes all the way back to 1866.

Today, FRS, with its base in Northern Germany, has a portfolio that comprises 13 subsidiaries located in Europe and North Africa. In addition to numerous international ferry and catamaran lines, three regional bus operations complete the product range.
