The activities on the ferry service ForSea comprise the four business areas Travel, Freight, Food & Beverage and Shopping. Frequent departures, high reliability and the chance to have a break onboard the five modern ferries are popular across business areas and customer groups.

Travel

Cars, buses and persons only comprise the largest customer group at ForSea. Commuters with address on one side of Öresund and workplace on the other make use of the route on a daily basis. The route is also popular with tourists and locals, doing their shopping onboard or on the other side of Öresund.

In 2017, the route transported 7.1 million passengers and 1.3 million cars. More than one of ten cars on the route made use of the AutoBizz Smart solution, which ensures customers the best price on Öresund and a number of advantages onboard.

Freight

Haulers and truck drivers make use of the route as the floating bridge of the Öresund region. The route offers on time departures at all times – and the break on the ferry saves both driving time and mileage. The facilities onboard are open all hours, and there is a Truckers Lounge onboard all ferries.

428,000 trucks crossed Öresund on ForSea in 2017.

Food & Beverage

Onboard all ferries on the route, passengers may enjoy simple and freshly made courses in FoodXpress as well as freshly brewed coffee in Café Ristretto. Onboard Aurora, there is also Restaurant Waves, which offers lunch courses, á la carte menu and bar as well as varying events. The chance to enjoy food and beverages as well as shop onboard has laid the foundation for the “Tura” concept – which is used by locals to describe taking a trip with the ferry without disembarking on the other side of Öresund.

Retail

ShopXpress stores on all ferries are open all hours and offer a wide selection of products at competitive prices. Passengers may browse the choices in shops and on specific ferries as well as print a shopping list via the website hhshopping.se.

The shopping opportunities are used by both tourists and locals in the region, doing their shopping onboard or on the other side of Öresund.
