Wallenius Wilhelmsen signs a new contract with major EV manufacturer

Oslo, June 22, 2023 -- Wallenius Wilhelmsen has signed a new contract with a major EV manufacturer lasting until the end of 2025. The contract includes both land and sea services from Asia to Europe, as well as from Asia to North America at rates reflecting the current strong demand and tight balance in the market. The contract also includes an agreement to use and pay for biofuel. "We will prioritize customers who are looking to work with us both on land and at sea, and who share our ambition to reduce emissions in the supply chain," says Pia Synnerman, Chief Customer Officer at Wallenius Wilhelmsen. Wallenius Wilhelmsen has set ambitious green targets with a clear green agenda. Sustainable energy sources are still an unresolved issue, and biofuel is the only current option to secure energy transition. Consequently, the company has a good dialogue with existing and new customers to ensure that sustainable fuel becomes part of all new contracts. "The manufacturers of electric vehicles that we talk to have high ambitions to further strengthen their decarbonization efforts. I am therefore pleased that we have signed a contract with a major EV manufacturer which includes payment for biofuel," says Synnerman.
