On a quarterly basis, HH Ferries Group publishes HH QUARTERLY as a contribution to the public debate with concrete facts concerning the traffic and financial development of the Öresund region, which Scandlines Helsingborg-Helsingör plays an important role in promoting.
Scandlines Helsingborg-Helsingör continued the positive development and made progress in Q1 2018 in terms of transferred cars, ensuring the route an increased share of car traffic on Öresund. The expansion of ferry Hamlet’s timetable from 1 December 2017 entailed greater capacity, which was almost fully utilized in Q1 already.
Growth in cargo traffic on Scandlines Helsingborg-Helsingör continued in Q4 2017, and the increasing cargo traffic entailed higher capacity utilisation on the route’s ferries despite a minor decline in the number of cars. Capacity was increased by expanding the timetable of the Hamlet ferry by 5 hours per day as per 1 December.
In Q3 2017, Scandlines Helsingborg-Helsingör saw continued growth in cargo traffic, and despite a minor decrease in the number of transported cars, the increasing cargo traffic entailed a higher capacity utilisation on the route’s ferries. Management therefore decided to increase capacity by expanding ferry Hamlet’s sailing schedule by five hours daily.
Scandlines Helsingborg-Helsingör transported more cars and passengers in Q2 2017 than in the comparison period, and the development was positively affected by Easter, which fell in Q1 last year. The number of transported trucks was unchanged and the time table and reliability were only marginally impacted by the postponement of the commissioning of Tycho Brahe as a 100% battery-operated ferry in June.
The positive development in the number of transferred trucks continued in Q1 2017. The number of transported cars and passengers declined, primarily due to the timing of Easter in Q2 this year against Q1 last year. The seasonal impact during Easter is significant and complicates the assessment of the effect of the changed traffic pattern in the region. Both Tycho Brahe and Aurora completed preparatory dockings ahead of their final conversion to battery operation without impacting service or regularity.
The positive development in the number of transported trucks continued in the last quarter of 2016, while the changed traffic pattern in the region affected the number of transported cars and passengers. HH Ferries Group reached another milestone on the path towards ensuring greener ferry operations on Öresund by obtaining environmental certification in accordance with the ISO 14001:2015 standard.
The positive development in the number of transported trucks and buses continued in Q3. The number of transported cars and passengers was impacted by ID control, and despite a high activity level in July, traffic declined from a high level in 2015. In September, the Swedish government presented its proposal to compensate haulers for expenses related to ID control, which has imposed significant costs on HH Ferries Group since the turn of the year.
Ferry traffic on Öresund was significantly impacted by ID control in Q2 2016, entailing a decline in the number of cars and passengers. The increased number of transported trucks and buses could not outweigh the effects of the imposed ID control, which affected around 850,000 persons in the quarter and entails significant monthly costs of […]
Ferry traffic on Øresund increased in Q1 2016. The total number of passengers at Scandlines Helsingborg-Helsingör increased significantly, and the number of transported vehicles was higher compared to the same period last year. Progress can be ascribed, though, to the fact that Easter fell in Q1 this year against Q2 in 2015, while the introduction […]
Scandlines Helsingborg-Helsingör increased its activity level moderately in Q4 2015. The number of transported trucks and buses increased significantly, while the development was relatively flat for the total amount of passengers as well as cars and foot passenger tickets.
In Q3 2015, Scandlines Helsingør-Helsingborg transported 2.6 million passengers (2014: 2.5 million), and the number of transferred vehicles and persons only tickets as well as the use of AutoBizz Smart were on the rise.
