The Ultramax vessel made calls to Tasmania’s Burnie and Hobart ports in earlier this month.

Its arrival was the culmination of the work of Braemar ACM which successfully brokered the charter between Wood Based Products (WBP) and the Pacific Basin Shipping Limited

“We value and support of Braemer, Pacific Basin and the Tasmanian forest estate owners, both private and public, who have ensured that Tasmanian timber is internationally recognised as sustainable and in demand through its PEFC certification (Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) and the confidence they bring through reliability of supply and log quality,” a spokesperson for WBP said.

“The professionalism and efficiency of the Nobel Island crew was a credit to the leadership of Captain Joshua Henry Peris Bhatt.

“We also thank our staff, suppliers and partners, all who deliver a safe, efficient operation that has enabled WBP’s success in facilitating a shipment of this size,” the spokesperson said.

“WBP provides products to a range of emerging and stable markets which assists the Tasmanian forest sector to navigate changes in global demands.”
