About us

The FRS Group is a leading German shipping company which transports passengers, vehicles and cargo (www.frs.de).

With more than 150 years of experience, the company operates routes using ferries and fast crafts in Europe, USA and Canadá, Northern Africa and the Middle East.

Its fleet ranges from water taxis to modern ferries and catamarans. FRS has focused its efforts on internationalisation, transforming itself from a regional ferry operator to an active business group with branch offices spread throughout Europe, USA and Canada, Africa and the Middle East, offering ferry services for vehicles and passengers, excursions, freight divisions and even regional bus routes.

Who we are:

The FRS Group has been present in Spain since 2000, when it began operating the Strait of Gibraltar routes through the divisions FRS Iberia and FRS Maroc.

FRS is the only shipping company which operates all of the routes on the Strait of Gibraltar and other important routes:

We are the only ferry company that operates every route in the Strait of Gibraltar.

Our punctuality percentage in the Algeciras - Ceuta line is 95% since we started operating it in 2008.

 

Another new development in 2018 is that we have started organising Ceuta Day Trips for groups over 15 people.

With more than 10 years of experience organising trips to Morocco, FRS takes you to the very best spots in the country, including Asilah, Chaouen and Tangier. And now Ceuta in 1 day for groups of more than 15 people.

Our travel agency, FRS Travel, specialises in organising tailored trips, excursions and tours, for which purpose it only works with the best tourist service providers in Morocco. Whatever the traveller is looking for, whether it be cuisine, adventure or relaxation, FRS Travel offers you a whole range of options, including getaways and tailored tours.

One of the most popular excursions is the Tangier cultural 1-day trip, which departs from Tarifa. The trip includes, amongst others, return FRS ferry tickets, excursions with a local guide to the kasbah and souk and lunch at a typical Moroccan restaurant.

FRS Travel's tours of between two and four days to Asilah (on the coast) and to Chaouen (in the mountains) are very popular. In terms of tours which last between three and seven days, these may be tailored, with the option of trekking, and there is a range of 3-5 star hotels to choose from.

Our headquarters are located in C/La Línea de la Concepción, 3, 11380 Tarifa - Cádiz (España).

FRS is now certified with My Care

We are the First Shipping Line to be awarded the My Care certification from DNV GL for managing the risk of infection in our facilities following the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Our Ceuta Jet ferry, which transports passengers and cargo along the Algeciras-Ceuta line, has already been granted the My Care certification. Likewise, the same protocols also apply to the three cargo ships that operate the Algeciras-Tanger Med route: Kattegat, Tanger Express and Miramar Express.

What does this certification mean?

This certification shows that we have implemented more comprehensive hygiene and safety protocols to avoid the risk of infections connected to the pandemic, in addition to preventing any other pathogens.

What is My Care?

The My Care certification is based on hospital standards and management systems for protecting people, guaranteeing processes of improvement and continuous supervision, which will be converted into a dynamic protocol to be adapted to all kinds of health and safety-related risks.

Complying with these strict protocols is essential for us at FRS, as we are responsible for our customers’ wellbeing.

My Care demonstrates and certifies that we have implemented the appropriate health and safety measures, such as:

Safety distance notices, temperature control, signage, supply of PPI, staff training and awareness, information monitoring, increased cleaning and disinfection in all areas, hygiene stations with hydroalcoholic gels, modified seating to maintain the safety distance, areas protected by screens for families or groups, contactless payment on board, and a movement circuit for maintaining the safety distance, among others.

Moreover, we have also digitalised the entire booking, purchasing and online check-in processes, thus avoiding unnecessary trips to the ticket booth, queues and crowds at the port. Our customers can now obtain their fixed-date ticket online and go straight to the ferry with their boarding pass.
