WEC offers Liverpool-Portugal link

[ January 26, 2016   //   ]

Short-sea operator WEC Lines is introducing a new weekly container service between Liverpool and Lisbon, Setubal, Leixoes and Sines in Portugal from February. It also offers connections to Ireland, Scotland, Morocco, Spain and the Canaries. Kestrel is the UK agent.

WEC Lines said: “We’re seeing growing demand to ship via Liverpool to provide better access to the heart of the UK. The additional supply chain benefits that Peel Ports are able to offer, from quayside services to trimodal transport options, have also been important in our decision. So, our hope is that this will just be a first step towards increasing trade to important UK markets via the North-west.”
