A ferry is a facility by which truckers may get across seas. Truckers can use ferries by driving trucks to seaports, paying the transport fee, wait for the vessel's arrival and then resume driving.
It's first introduced in Euro Truck Simulator Gold Edition, with a ferry service available between Calais, France and Dover, United Kingdom. True to the simple, compressed map of that game, both ports provide little facilities other than a rest stop in front of ship boarding ramps.
Ferries are also the primary transport between United Kingdom and continental Europe, but more routes are provided. Specifically, the Channel Tunnel becomes available and greatly speeds up cross-channel traffic, although ferries have the advantage of providing vital rest time. Euro Lines is the primary ferry service provider.
The Scandinavia DLC introduces several more ferry lines to / from the new realms, operated by Polaris Lines. Norway is the most notable country by that all its 4 featured cities have ferry links to Denmark. As Norwegian roads go through mountainous terrain and thus involve various sharp turns and slopes, truckers are generally advised to take ferries to enter / leave the country (except for going to / from Sweden).
