Monday October 9th and Tuesday October 10th, 2023, WEC Lines joined the “Le Port Fait Sa Rentrée” event, as organised by the Nantes Saint-Nazaire Port.
Over 250 other guests participated at the event, from local partners and shippers to shipping companies and port authorities, to discuss the latest short sea developments with as key topic the short sea CO2 emission reductions.
During this event, our Managing Director Caesar Luikenaar joined a round table conference to discuss the theme “Modal shift and Montoir’s place in the new logistics’ plan” as well as a smaller session held for a selective group of key stakeholders and clients.
With the recently introduced fixed day, 21-day roundtrip from/to Morocco via Montoir-de-Bretagne into the UK and Benelux, WEC Lines’ aims to unlock the West France/Great Britain region with solid short sea services and as such taking cargo off the road, and onto vessels to promote substantial CO2 emission savings. By offering intermodal solutions where short sea, rail and road are combined, we are not only preparing saving CO2, but ensuring on-time delivery and flexibility.
The event took place at the port’s terminal & office where all attendees were invited to visit the WEC Van Ruysdael. We would like to thank Philip Collet, General Manager WEC Lines Belgium, for taking on the role as “Chef de Mission” on behalf of WEC Lines thanks to whom we can look back at a successful event.
