Logs are an important cargo type for Clipper
Log trading is a large part of the handysize market in the Pacific, driven by the increased demand in China. New Zealand is among the three largest log exporters in the world, and a leader in the seaborne trade of logs.
Clipper has a strong fleet of loggers – vessels certified to load cargo (logs) on deck. In order to stow the logs, special stanchions are fitted to the vessel, and special log lashing equipment is used to lash and secure the cargo after loading.
Clipper Lasco is one of our many handysize loggers. In the photos below, you can see her on a typical logger voyage, carrying around 27,468 cbm of logs from New Zealand to China in 40 days.
Clipper Lasco is part of the Clipper Logger Pool, the largest of our five distinct pools.
