Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL) recently joined the inauguration of the new Hitachinaka terminal in Japan with their Ro-Ro Vessel M/V Tarago taking center stage.

The new terminal is operated by the Ibaraki Prefecture Government. Over the years, WWL has built a strong relationship with the terminal – including being the first carrier loading export cargo after the earthquake in 2011. WWL’s vessel, with its striking bright red design, loaded Hitachi and Komatsu units during the inauguration. The terminal is the new home port for both of these companies.

M/V Tarago’s Captain Sebastian Aleksander Staszek together with Kim E. Buoy, APAC Vice President Operations, represented WWL at the ceremony. Mr. Buoy highlighted in a small speech the importance of Hitachinaka in WWL’s global network, support of local manufacturing and the desire for a long and fruitful relationship with the Ibaraki Prefecture Government and its stakeholders.

Captain Sebastian Aleksander Staszek stated: “I am very pleased with the new terminal and want to highlight the smoothness of operations performance, quality of the overall facility and great cooperation with all stakeholders.”

Besides the terminal, WWL also has long-standing relationships with both Hitachi and Komatsu, which are both major customers for rolling equipment. WWL is set for 3-4 port calls at Hitachinaka per month in the ASNA trade.


The new terminal itself has been built by using land-fill (ash) from the adjacent coal power-station and is part of a major expansion program in the port, which also will be a major export hub for Fuji Heavy Industries Subaru automobiles in the future.
