Car imports from Hyundai/Kia in South Korea comprise the bulk of Wallhamn AB’s handling activities. According to Henrik Sundin, CEO of Wallhamn AB, operational leasing is common in the automobile industry, and makes good sense for the company.
“This extended leasing contract provides us with budgetable expenses and consequently full control of our costs throughout the entire contract period,” he said. “Every week we act as the gateway for Hyundai and Kia automobiles destined for the Swedish, Norwegian and – as of February 2007 – Danish markets, so it is imperative that we have a fleet of equipment that is not only cost-effective but also highly reliable.”
