Scandlines is a major German-Danish ferry operator.
It consists of a parent company, Scandlines AG, and under this parent company a German subsidiary named Scandlines Deutschland GmbH and a Danish subsidiary named Scandlines Danmark ApS. Scandlines as a whole operates 17 lines for passenger and freight in and between Denmark, Germany, Sweden, and the Baltic countries.
Scandlines used to be co-owned by the Danish Ministry of Transportation (50%) and Deutsche Bahn AG (50%), but as of June 2007, it is owned by a consortium consisting of 3i Group of London (40%), Allianz Capital Partners of Munich (40%) and Deutsche Seereederei of Rostock (20%). The consortium bought Scandlines for a total of 1,560 million Euros. On 29 October 2010, the remaining 20% of Scandlines was acquired from Deutsche Seereederei (DSR) Rostock. Now 3i and Allianz both hold 50% of Scandlines. The Scandlines services to Sweden are served in co-operation with Stena Line. Stena Line owns several ships of the Scandlines brand. In June 2012 Stena and Scandlines announced Stena will buy Scandlines Sweden and Baltic services. These will be brought under the Stena Line brand. Scandlines will retain the more passenger focused Denmark services.
