Cargo shipping line WW Ocean has delivered a shipment of high-pressure steam drums to the U.S. from South Korea.

“The delivery schedule of project cargo like these steam drums is important as it’s connected to onsite construction timelines. We closely monitor the itineraries of our vessels to keep customers and their suppliers up to date and meet tight deadlines,” said Kyuil Chun, breakbulk sales representative for WW Ocean.
Headquarted in Norway, WW Ocean is part of the Wallenius Wilhelmen group and provides global ocean cargo solutions via a fleet of more than 50 roll-on, roll-off vessels.
