OSLO, March 18 (Reuters) – Norwegian shipping firm Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL) has been fined $34 million by the Japanese Fair Trade Commission for price-fixing in automobile shipping between 2008 and 2012, the firm said on Tuesday.
The 3.496 billion yen fine, part of a final cease and desist order, is in line with a preliminary ruling in January.
WWL is 50 pct owned by Wilh. Wilhelmsen ASA.
