Wallenius Wilhelmsen recently signed a significant multi-year shipping contract with Korea’s leading construction machinery company. The new agreement, which has a duration of three years, plus a two-year extension option, is valued at approximately USD 290 million based on expected volumes over the three-year period. The contract commenced in January 2024, with rates in line with current market levels.

Customers are partnering up with us and are increasingly committed to securing more sustainable solutions, such as biofuel.”
