By: Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics March 04, 2014
Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics has introduced a twice-monthly service from Santander, Spain to South Africa, and on to Australia.
The change offers additional capacity and extended port coverage, the line said. It is being operated with WWL's fleet of roll-on/roll-off vessels, adapted to carry a mix of cars, rolling equipment and breakbulk cargoes. WWL also offers trucking and other inland distribution services for the Iberian market. In addition to Santander, it makes regular calls in Europe at Bremerhaven, Zeebrugge, Southampton and Le Havre. In another company announcement, WWL has opened a branch office in Barcelona, Spain. It has been operating in that location since 1987, through local agent Agencia Maritima Espanola Evge S.A. It will remain WWL's husbandry agent for Spain, and continue as the company's agent in Greece and Turkey. WWL has also operated an inland transportation company in Barcelona. The company has a worldwide fleet of 60 vessels.
