Western Softwood Chips
The wood chips produced by Roseburg come from the highest quality western softwood trees found only in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. They are loaded onto vessels at Roseburg's Coos Bay Shipping Terminal located at the port of Coos Bay, OR. The terminal was built in 1968 by Roseburg to export softwood and hardwood chips to Japan. It is one of the largest and most efficient “bulk and break-bulk” cargo handling terminals in North America. Although the main use for the dock is the loading of export wood chips, Roseburg has the potential to load and unload virtually any bulk vessel at its Port of Coos Bay terminal. Bulk product is loaded pneumatically for higher compaction rates. Break-bulk cargo such as barrels, bags, pallets, or other cargo would be handled primarily by crane. Other specialized loading/unloading services can be customized. Wharfage fees and local piloting charges can be provided upon request. Fumigation is also available if required and current pricing can be provided.
