Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics has added an entry port into Russia, at Novorossiysk, the company announced Thursday.
The new port is added to WWL’s liner service from Japan, Korea, China and Southeast Asia to Europe, and provides customers in Asia with direct access to the Russian Black Sea area, WWL said.
WWL said it will handle various kinds of rolling and tracked equipment, and static and project cargo to Novorossiysk.
“Novorossiysk presents, due to its location, a direct entry into the Russian Black Sea region and is closer to markets in the south-western part of Russia than St. Petersburg,” WWL said in a statement. “This makes Novorossiysk a good supplementary option, saving costs and transportation time for customers sending cargo to south-west Russia and other areas around the Caspian Sea.”
