Coos Bay Shipping Terminal

Quality & Efficiency Lead to Affordability

Roseburg Forest Products owns and operates one of the largest and most efficient “bulk and break-bulk” cargo handling terminals in North America. Located at the port of Coos Bay, OR, it was built in 1968 to export softwood and hardwood chips to Japan.

Although the main use for the dock is the loading of export wood chips, Roseburg has the potential to load and unload virtually any bulk vessel at its Port of Coos Bay terminal. Bulk product is loaded pneumatically for higher compaction rates. Break-bulk cargo such as barrels, bags, pallets, or other cargo would be handled primarily by crane. Other specialized loading/unloading services can be customized. Wharfage fees and local piloting charges can be provided upon request. Fumigation is also available if required and current pricing can be provided.
