WWL extends services to Mexico

August 15 - Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL) is set to expand its ocean transportation services from Veracruz in Mexico.

Effective September 2013, WWL will offer two or three sailings per month from Veracruz to the US East Coast, before voyaging to Western Europe.
The service calls include the ports of Veracruz, Galveston, Brunswick, Charleston and Baltimore; then proceeding to Europe calling Antwerp, Bremerhaven and Southampton.
The service also offers the capability to connect to routes across WWL's network around the world.
The first vessel to launch the service will be the WWL Freedom.
"WWL is excited to support manufacturer needs for ocean transportation from Mexico to the US East Coast and beyond," says Rich Heintzelman, evp and head of commercial for Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics Americas. "As we see a shift toward greater domestic manufacturing in Mexico, it will become increasingly important to strengthen export-bound ocean services from Mexico around the globe."
