RoRo specialist Wallenius Wilhelmsen is significantly increasing its strategic terminal and processing network by signing a 20-year lease agreement with the Georgia Ports Authority (GPA), with options up to 30 years.

Wallenius Wilhelmsen’s Brunswick footprint includes expansions and enhancements to its existing terminal and auto vehicle processing center (VPC). An important addition is the new equipment processing center (EPC) that can store, customize, assemble, exercise, and distribute machinery on behalf of equipment OEMs and their dealers. The combination of services, coupled with the strategic benefits to the company’s shipping network, will provide invaluable benefits for Wallenius Wilhelmsen’s stakeholders going forward, as the company mentions.

Lasse Kristoffersen, CEO, Wallenius Wilhelmsen, says that “Our expansion and new long-term commitment in Brunswick strengthen our position as the preferred supply chain partner to North American automotive, equipment and breakbulk customers providing our complete package of market-leading end-to-end logistics services.”

Kent Fourtain, GPA Board Chairman, sys that “We are thankful for our longtime partnership with Wallenius Wilhelmsen and are excited to begin this new chapter of service,” who adds that “With the efficiencies of their Brunswick operation, GPA and Wallenius Wilhelmsen will continue to deliver world-class reliability for our mutual customers.”
