Expanded services at WWL

Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL) has added the port of Vigo in Spain to its Atlantic Ocean ro-ro service.

The direct service will call at the port on a monthly basis and can carry auto, rolling equipment and breakbulk cargo.

After calling at other European ports, the vessels on the Atlantic Ocean service will sail from Vigo to Baltimore and Galveston in the USA; Veracruz in Mexico; Manzanillo in Panama; and Cartagena and Santa Marta in Colombia.

The change will come into effect by the end January, when the first WWL vessel arrives in Vigo.

In addition to the expanded Atlantic Ocean service, WWL will change the rotation of the three vessels trading between North and South America in February 2018, doubling the frequency of its South America service to two sailings per month.

From March 2018, WWL will also introduce a third monthly northbound sailing from the South American East Coast to the US Gulf, calling at the ports of Zarate; Paranagua; Santos; Cartagena; Galveston; and Veracruz.

For Manta, Iquique, Rio Grande and Suape, the once-monthly frequency will remain. Calls to Vitoria in Brazil and other ports will be considered upon request. 

In future, due to the political situation in Venezuela negatively affecting cargo volumes, direct calls to Puerto Cabello will only be considered on request.
