In November 2019, WALLENIUS SOL will include Port of Vaasa in its regular liner network. The service is a major improvement for the region, enabling cost effective and environmentally friendly logistical solutions to the industry and trade.
With weekly calls, WALLENIUS SOL will connect Vaasa with the Belgian ports of Antwerp and Zeebrugge. This is made possible through a long-term co-operation with technology company Wärtsilä, who will have its state-of-the-art production facility on site. The facility, called the Smart Technology Hub, will be located in direct connection with Port of Vaasa from 2021 onwards. All inbound deliveries from Central Europe to Vaasa will be routed via a consolidation point in Antwerp with the weekly sailings offered by WALLENIUS SOL. Furthermore, WALLENIUS SOL will ship the ready-made engines southbound from Wärtsilä to its customers worldwide, also with Antwerp as hub.
