New WEC route to Bilbao
The shortsea operator WEC Lines UK is set to offer a new direct container service between the Dutch port of Moerdijk and Bilbao (Spain) from 24 October, in conjunction with A2B and with further destinations in the UK, Norway, Germany, and Poland.
Bilbao, the main Spanish port in terms of traffic with the United Kingdom, accounting for approximately 27% of flow, will be served twice a week. Moreover, the twice-weekly arrival at Teesport brings the number of vessels calling at the British port to 25 a week. (cd)
