May 9 - To support increased cargo flows from the UK, Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL) has added the Port of Bristol as a regular call on its Europe to the US West Coast service.

WWL's Theben recently loaded the first consignments of automobiles and heavy construction machinery bound for Baltimore, before continuing via the Panama Canal to the ports of Hueneme and Tacoma on the US West Coast.

The service will call at the Port of Bristol's Royal Portbury Dock in the UK three to four times per month.
"Having the option of multiple ports in the UK provides terminal capacity at a level required to service large scale export volumes that is valued by WWL and its customers," said WWL in a statement.
