Baltimore signs WWL deal

December 4 - The Port of Baltimore has agreed a 30-year contract with shipping and logistics giant Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL), guaranteeing that the Scandinavian headquartered line will serve the port through until 2045.

"Our entire administration is committed to making Maryland more business friendly, and today we add WWL to our state's growing list of business success stories," said Maryland Governor, Larry Hogan. "This new contract, tying WWL's success to that of the Port of Baltimore for the next three decades, will support nearly 1,000 jobs here in Maryland and is a ringing endorsement of the strength and importance of this partnership."

This deal replaces an existing 20-year deal between WWL and the port, which was due to expire in 2021.

"Baltimore is WWL's largest port of business in the Americas, and a gateway to key markets in the US and around the globe," said Raymond Fitzgerald, president - Atlantic at WWL. "WWL-operated ships call at Baltimore nearly 150 times each year to accommodate the needs of our customers - some of the largest and top vehicle, heavy machinery and ro-ro shippers in the world."
