DFDS, a Danish ferry and freight shipping company, says it will buy another ferry from Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri Cantieri Navali, bringing its total order to three.

In May DFDS ordered two ships for its Swedish cargo operator Tor Line AB. At the time of the announcement, DFDS said it had the option to buy up to two more ships. DFDS did not disclose the price it will pay for the roll-on roll-off ships. The first ship will be delivered in April 1998.
