Handling of Forest Products

We handle forest products for the European paper industry for over 30 years now.

Nowadays, wood pulp forms the main focus. Paper, timber plywood and hardboards represent additional transshipment goods. Overall, until today we have handled more than 12 million tons of forest products.

Terminal handling primarily takes place at berth and the Terminal “Emskai”. Modern sprinklered warehouses with a total floor area of 28,800 sqm are currently in service. For smooth operation further open storage areas are available near the quay and near the storage facilities.

From the beginning in 1983, the Paper Mill Nordland Papier GmbH in Dörpen, a subsidiary of the Finnish UPM Group, has used a tailor made service. The imported pulp has been transshipped efficient, environmental friendly and cost effectively from all types of sea going vessels straight into river barges and then transported to the Dörpen plant in accordance to the customer demand. The handling of forest products takes place with coasters and special tonnage.

Heavy mobile harbour cranes are available.

For the handling of forest products into barges, onto railcars and trucks special equipment in a wide range is available. Also the stuffing of containers is part of our daily work.
