About Westwood Shipping
Westwood Shipping Lines stands apart among transpacific carriers. Our personal approach
to customer service and versatile state-of-the-art vessels combine with reliable
shipping schedules and superior cargo handling capabilities to safely transport
your goods. Westwood is a wholly owned subsidiary of J-WeSco. J-WeSco is a holding
company formed by a consortium of Japanese stevedore companies, all of which have
been key service providers to Westwood for more than 25 years.
While our services reach across the Pacific and throughout North America, our relationships
with our customers remain focused on providing the high-touch and personalized service
that sets us apart. We are dedicated to providing high quality service to meet the
varied and specific needs of our customers.
Oversized cargo, containers and breakbulk forest products sail together on the same
Westwood ship. Our flexible ship design permits safe, efficient handling of all
types of cargo, no matter how bulky or fragile.
Serving customers in more than 20 ports in Japan, Korea, China and North America
with a fixed-day, weekly sailing schedule, we provide predictable, on-time transportation
alternatives for forest products, containerized and oversized cargo. Through partnerships
with both customers and suppliers—and utilizing the Pacific Northwest gateway—Westwood
has emerged as the premier carrier in this specialized "niche" market.
