Dutch shipping company, WEC Lines, has introduced additional weekly calls to ports in Northern Spain, Portugal, North Africa and the Canary Islands to its current rotation into the Port of Liverpool.
The weekly services will add to the existing Portuguese and Spanish routes that have been operating at the port since 2019.
The new weekly services, which will import a range of products from Southern Europe and North Africa, started this month from Bilbao, Vigo and Gijon in Spain, Casablanca in Morocco, Setubal and Leixoes in Portugal, and Santa Cruz and Las Palmas in the Canaries.

WEC Lines’ Managing Director, Roger Megann, said: “This is a significant upgrade and expansion of our service, offering our customers weekly reliability and new direct connections to and from Portugal, Spain, Canaries and North Africa to Liverpool.”
This service upgrade comes more than a month after a new industry study ranked the Port of Liverpool as the UK’s top port for port-centric logistics potential.
