Routes & Schedules

We offer a solution for your business with door-to-door services that utilize dedicated sea routes and rail options across Europe, North Africa, the Red Sea, East Africa and Pakistan. On top of that, we provide additional services for the first and last miles of transportation.

Deep Sea

Our knowledge about cargo transport to and from East Africa and the Red Sea stretches far beyond the ports we serve. We connect a large number of ports in the NWC and West MED regions with East Africa and the Red Sea. With the help of our experienced colleagues within our agency network, we can move your cargo to the final destination in the best way possible.

Short Sea

With over five decades of experience, WEC Lines has gained an unmatched amount of knowledge when it comes to shipping your goods in the most seamless way possible. Read more about our short sea shipping possibilities on this page.

Port Tariffs

It’s always good to be well informed when it comes to the different tariffs that come with different ports. That's why we have a comprehensive list of tariffs available, which outlines all applicable charges. By reviewing the list of tariffs, you can ensure that you are aware of any additional costs associated with your shipment.
