Finnish Paper coming to Philly
The Port of Philadelphia said Finnish paper company M-real will use one of its terminals as its primary U.S. port of entry.
Effective May 7, Wagenborg Shipping B.V., a major forest products carrier, will begin delivering M-real's cargoes to Philadelphia Regional Port Authority’s Forest Products Distribution Center at Piers 78 and 80. The facility is operated by Penn Warehousing & Distribution Co. Inc.
Philadelphia said specially designed Wagenborg ships will make 18 to 24 calls annually in Philadelphia, moving a projected 150,000 metric tons of new cargo through Philadelphia. The port said the cargo had previously moved through Baltimore.
