Suardiaz joins WEC to boost connections from Bilbao to UK and Ireland

Since the end of June, the shipping company WEC Lines (MSC) has appointed the Suardiaz Group as commercial agent for the regular liner it launched last month that connects the Bilbao hub with Liverpool (UK) and Dublin (Ireland). The Suardiaz union took place on the same dates that the service began operating, according to sources from the group. The route is designed to be integrated with the one it already operates that connects the Bilbao area with England, Portugal, the Canary Islands and North Africa, and responds, according to the company, to the request of its customers to include Dublin in that network.

The weekly service is operated by a dedicated 812 TEU vessel on a fixed daily rotation, departing Bilbao on Saturdays and arriving in Dublin on Mondays and Liverpool on Tuesdays, offering customers greater flexibility and efficiency, such as fast end-of-mile delivery. In principle, the aim is to continue with 150 or 200 TEUs per week in each direction, although Suardiaz sources confirm that “of course, we are open to increasing it”. The weekly services are also maintained in the second.

“The service connecting the Iberian Peninsula with Dublin and Liverpool guarantees complete and real-time information, comprehensive monitoring and immediate operational procedures throughout the entire transport process, which is particularly important when shipping temperature-sensitive, food or hazardous loads,” says the Spanish company.
