Port of Uddevalla have entered into a new three-year agreement with our customer, in which will deepen our cooperation. The agreement implies that we will continue to receive their packaging material, as well as store and load it on board Wagenborg Shipping's Liner Service between Uddevalla and Philadelphia.
- At Uddevalla Hamnterminal we are happy to have received the renewed confidence in handling our customers packaging material for another period. They have high demands on quality at all levels and this is of course proof that we have delivered during the past year. The length of the agreement means that we can invest in long-term sustainability and stability when we develop our service, in an otherwise turbulent time. says Ulf Stenberg, CEO of Uddevalla Hamnterminal.
In this service Wagenborg Shipping operates the vessel M/V Oranjeborg as well as several breakbulk vessels in the A class, and there will be two to three vessels a month to Philadelphia, US.
- A lot has happened since our collaboration with this customer for export to the US east coast began, a little more than a year ago. The volumes across Uddevalla have increased successively, and nowadays there are often extra vessels booked as the demand for Swedish-made packaging material is high. We have invested large resources in the form of personnel, warehouses, and IT, which has led to a huge development in our service during this time, Ulf Stenberg adds.
The agreement covers a volume of approx. 120,000 tonnes in 2023 and 175,000 – 200,000 tonnes in 2024/2025.
