Red Sea situation: vessels re-routing amid safety concerns

The safety of our people is our number one priority. As a result of the ongoing security situation in the southern parts of the Red Sea, Wallenius Wilhelmsen has until further notice decided to reroute all vessels to avoid the area. We continue to monitor the situation closely and remain in direct consultation with authorities, industry bodies and all relevant counterparts.

Safety first

To monitor the ever-changing situation we have developed a cross-functional team. Aside from ensuring safety, the team is evaluating operational, legal and commercial implications over the next couple of months.

How will this affect our services

We’ve taken the decision to reroute all vessels planned for Red Sea transit to the Cape of Good Hope. The deviated routes will add an estimated 10-14 days in extra sailing time.

We will continue to provide updates as they become available, and our sales staff will provide additional information to customers on a case-by-case basis.
