German wood for the Chinese market

NORDENHAM. German spruce wood worth €3m was shipped to China in July from the port of Rhenus Midgard. The 11.8 and 5.9 metre logs were transported to the bulk carrier Glorious Kauri in the city port by truck and barge. Within the port area, trucks were used to transport the logs from the various storage areas and the logs were then loaded on board with a port crane. A second loading took place in early September. About twelve ships per year are planned.
