Wallenius Wilhelmsen opens Galveston facility

March 16 - Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics has opened a heavy equipment processing facility at the Port of Galveston.

This is one of 11 high and heavy processing facilities WWL operates, serving manufacturers and forwarders of heavy rolling equipment.

The facilities allow manufacturers to store products closer to the end buyer, shorten delivery times and save on priority shipping expenses, said John Felitto, executive vice president of Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics Americas.

The Galveston facility can store 7,000 units and provides other key services such as inventory management, inspections, repairs, preventative maintenance, cleaning and dealer distribution. It is located in a foreign trade zone, providing duty exemption on re-exports for units that are temporarily stored at the site, as well as deferral of customs duty.
