WWL Opens Vehicle Processing Center at Tianjin FTZ

Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL), a global carrier of roll-on/roll-off cargoes and provider of logistics services, has opened a third vehicle processing center (VPC) in China.

It is located in the Dongjiang free trade zone of Tianjin port, China's second-largest vehicle import and export gateway. The Tianjin facility includes two ro/ro terminals. The presence of an FTZ there allows customers to withhold duty payments until product leaves the area. Services provided by the new VPC include port inspection, customs clearance, on-site customs inspection and quarantine officer, vehicle shuttling, storage of bonded and duty-paid vehicles, washing, repair and vehicle delivery to customers. The Tianjin VPC is operated by Tianjin Port Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics Co., Ltd., a joint venture between WWL China Ltd. and the Tianjin Port Group.
