Wallenius Wilhelmsen Ocean’s (WW Ocean) ro-ro vessel Bess has completed its maiden call at Port Freeport, Texas as part of its service connecting Asia with the Gulf Coast. 

According to Phyllis Saathoff, Port Freeport executive director and ceo, “the new service from Wallenius Wilhelmsen will add to the already existing multiple monthly calls from ro-ro vessels creating additional economic opportunity for our region”. 

Bess arrived at the port on May 26 and discharged 859 cars. In addition to automobile transportation, WW Ocean’s fleet of ro-ro vessels can handle trucks, rolling equipment and breakbulk cargoes.
