Wagenborg Shipping secures 3-year contract for paper trade to the US East Coast

After a tender process, Wagenborg Shipping has signed a 3-year contract for shipping services, regarding sea traffic volumes of paper from the Baltic to the US East Coast.

This contract is a renewal of an existing contract and can be considered as proof for the excellent performance of the geared A-type, T-type and Oranjeborg vessels on the Trans-Atlantic paper trade.

Zero damage, reliability and flexibility

Wagenborg knows the forest industry since 1898 and has grown together with many major forest companies. We realize the forest industry is highly competitive and an optimal supply chain is therefore crucial, including sea transport. It is all about zero-damage, reliability and flexibility. Preventing damage to cargo during loading, sea voyage and discharging, has our highest priority.

LOLO shipping concept with geared fleet

Our LOLO shipping concept ‘Lifts On’ and ‘Lifts Off’ forest products safe and efficient. Thanks to our custom-made equipment, such as paper clamps, we are able to handle high-quality cargo with care. Along with box-shaped holds, tween decks and ship cranes, our ice-class vessels can go practically anywhere, anytime. With real-time data we optimize sailing routes, minimize CO2 output and avoid bad weather. This reduces the risk of damage and makes timing even more reliable.
