WEC Lines implements Northwestern-Europe with Morocco

Dutch shipping company, WEC Lines, has introduced a new weekly service connecting the UK, France and Northwestern Europe with Casablanca, Morocco.

The shipping company has launched the new ‘Euro-Maroc service’, establishing a direct sailing route from Rotterdam and Antwerp to Casablanca.

The new service replaces the existing NWC Iberia and MOPT services, and will go into effect from 19 September.

This service, which departs from Montoir on Tuesday and arrives in Thamesport on Thursday, reportedly provides an environmentally beneficial alternative to vehicle travel from West France into England. Montoir will be called Northbound and Southbound twice a week.
