"WWL is excited to support manufacturer needs for ocean transportation from Spain to South Africa and Oceania", said Ramon Oliete, head of Iberia branch for WWL. "In 2013, a total of 1.9m cars were produced in Spain. Of that amount 90% or 1.7m cars were exported. As we expect the shift toward greater manufacturing in Spain to continue, it becomes important to strengthen export-bound ocean service here."
