FAQs About Shipping Wood Products? 

How is wood pulp shipped?

Wood pulp is packaged into pressed bales and can either be shipped ‘wet’ or ‘dry’. Similarly, to the final paper products, wood pulp is also sensitive to the effects of moisture, and changes in humidity can cause it to swell or decay during transport. At MSC we ensure that an appropriate temperature is maintained, and changes in humidity are avoided throughout the pulp shipping process.
