Tyne call for WWL

July 18 - Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL), has made its maiden call at the port of Tyne, near Newcastle in the UK, with a shipment from Asia.

WWL ro-ro ship Tristan brought a shipment of construction equipment from Asia on inducement from an existing WWL customer.

Whilst the port is not a regular port of call for WWL, it can be added to the existing WWL Asia to Europe service on inducement.

Steven Harrison, port of Tyne chief operating officer, said: "This has been introduced to meet the demands of plant and heavy equipment manufacturers who wish to move their cargo via the port and brings added connectivity to the Port of Tyne with a new ro-ro service."

Paul Reeves, managing director, Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics UK, said: "WWL's regular ro-ro service from Asia to Europe via the Suez and Panama canals is now enhanced by the possibility of a direct vessel calling to the port of Tyne that is connected to solid inland distribution services to the entire UK market and Ireland thanks to the strong presence and service capabilities of WWL ALS, responsible for the WWL UK inland network services."
