Subarus Reach Hueneme

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Port of Hueneme received its first shipment of Subaru autos imported from Japan this month, thanks to Wallenius Wilhelmsen Solutions (WWS) as they brought the business to the Southern California port.

The processing of the new imported cargo will take place at the WWS facility on Hueneme Road at Edison Drive. The move, which allows WWS to better serve regional markets, including Southern California, Nevada and New Mexico, will add 35 new full-time and 25 new part-time local jobs, according to the port.

“WWS has been a long-time customer of the port, and we will continue to work with them to increase opportunity for growth,” said Oxnard Harbor District President Mary Anne Rooney. “The more our customers see these growth opportunities, the more good paying jobs we see being created for our local residents.”
