Canfor Pulp Products Inc. is announcing temporary NBSK and BCTMP production reductions at Northwood Pulp and Taylor Pulp in response to the significant transportation interruptions being experienced in British Columbia (BC). The Company’s pulp shipments have declined as a result of the recent weather-related transportation disruptions. With pulp mill inventories nearing capacity, the Company’s pulp production will be reduced until such time as the BC transportation network is able to return to more-normal operating conditions. This will result in reduced production achieved through a minimum two-week curtailment of Canfor’s NBSK production at Northwood Pulp and a minimum four-week curtailment of the production of BCTMP at Taylor Pulp. “As a result of the extreme rainfall and flooding that BC has been experiencing in recent weeks, the rail and highway networks have been substantially impacted. Our employees have worked very hard to mitigate the impacts of the supply chain challenges and it has now become critical to reduce production to manage inventory levels and ensure employee safety until the transportation network returns to more normal operations,” said Canfor Pulp’s Chief Executive Officer, Don Kayne.
Paraná exported more than one million tons of paper and pulp between January and July 2022, a growth of 21% compared to the same period in 2021. The consolidated number of 1,091,752 tons , according to data from SECEX (Special Secretariat for Foreign Trade and International Affairs), it is strongly encouraged by Klabin, which a year ago began its mega operation to transport and export the production of the Puma II Project via the port of Paranaguá, including an investment of more than R＄ 300 million at the Ortigueira Railway Terminal, in partnership with Brado and TCP, capable of transporting 125 thousand tons of pulp and paper in containers per month, connecting the Puma Unit to the port.

The recent expansion of the Puma II, the result of R＄ 12.9 billion of investments, considered the largest private investment in the state, started its production and exportation in 2021, and already represents 6% of the total loads of paper and pulp shipped by the region. in the year 2022.
