Wagenborg secures 3-year paper trade contract to US
PRESS RELEASE – Wagenborg Shipping has signed a 3-year shipping contract to transport large paper volumes from the Baltic to the US East Coast.
It concerns a renewal of an existing contract with Finnish paper manufacturer Metsä Board. The contract will be carried out by the company’s geared A-type, T-type and Oranjeborg vessels on the Trans-Atlantic paper trade.
The company says the renewal should be considered as proof of Wagenborg’s “excellent performance.” Using a “lift on, lift off” shipping concept with geared ice-class vessels and custom made equipment such as paper clamps, the Dutch carrier says it has found a safe and efficient solution for forest products that reduces the risk of damage.
“Wagenborg has been active in the forest industry since 1898 and has grown together with many major forest companies”, the company states.
