Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics has expanded its ocean transportation service from Veracruz, Mexico.
Starting in September, WWL will offer two to three sailings per month from Veracruz to service the U.S. East Coast and connect with other routes. Service calls include the ports of Veracruz; Galveston, Texas; Brunswick, Ga.; Charleston, S.C.; and Baltimore, before proceeding to Europe to call at Antwerp, Belgium; Bremerhaven, Germany; and Southampton, England.
“WWL is excited to support manufacturer needs for ocean transportation from Mexico to the U.S. East Coast and beyond,” said Rich Heintzelman, executive vice president and head of commercial for WWL Americas, in a written statement. “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.”
The vessel Freedom will launch the service in September 2013.
