Port Officials and Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL), on the eve of WWL’s 26th anniversary at the Port, executed a fifth modification of its 1991 contract extending its agreement for an additional five years through December 31, 2018.
 

Wallenius Wilhelmsen ships first began calling at the Port of Hueneme in1987. In 1991, WWL established Pacific Ro-Ro Stevedoring (Pac-Ro) to handle autos arriving at the Port and Pacific Vehicle Processors (PVP) as part of a further expansion of the company’s logistics capabilities. WWL has been instrumental in driving the Port’s economic recovery and growth.
 

Harbor Board President Jason Hodge said, “Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics is a vital long term community partner and a significant economic engine. Between the business it brings to the Port, revenue contribution and local area workforce employment, WWL is a significant contributor to the Port’s surrounding communities.”
 

“WWL is pleased to continue its longstanding relationship with the Port,” said Len Mazzella, Vice President of West Coast Terminal Operations for Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics Americas. “The Port of Hueneme represents a special part of our history as the first of WWL's global hub ports offering ocean transportation, marine terminal and vehicle processing services. Together we have achieved remarkable growth, ultimately leading to success for the greater port community and in meeting the needs of the customers we are privileged to serve.” Port CEO and Executive Director Kristin Decas noted at the announcement, “26 years represents a lifetime in the maritime community. A lot has changed but the partnership between the Port and WWL stays strong.” Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics delivers innovative and sustainable global shipping and logistics solutions for manufacturers of cars, trucks, heavy equipment and specialized cargo. WWL’s sophisticated supply chain management services ensure an efficient integration of ocean transportation,inland distribution, terminal handling and a large comprehensive range of specialized technical services.
 

The Port of Hueneme is one of the most productive and efficient commercial trade gateways for niche cargo on the West Coast. The Port is governed by 5 locally elected Port Commissioners. The Port moves $7 billion in goods each year and consistently ranks among the top ten U.S. ports for automobiles and fresh produce. Port operations support the community by bringing $1 billion in economic activity and creating 9,448 trade-related jobs. Trade through the Port of Hueneme generates more than $63 million in annual state and local taxes which funds vital community services.
