Established in 2005, Cogent Fibre* is a privately held company that produces and exports pine wood chips from the eastern coast of the United States. The principals of Cogent Fibre have 45 years of combined experience sourcing, producing, marketing and exporting wood chips. To date, Cogent Fibre has exported more than four million metric tons of pine wood chips and is proud to be the leading wood chip exporter on the eastern coast of North America.
Cogent Fibre wood chips are produced from the necessary tree thinning of private timberlands in the
southeastern United States and as part of Cogent Fibre’s ongoing commitment to sustainability,
are Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) procurement certified.
Cogent Fibre wood chips are used in the manufacture of paper pulp, particleboard, medium density fibreboard and for the generation
of clean, renewable energy in biomass fired power plants.
Cogent Fibre is the exclusive wood chip exporter from East Coast Terminals and The Port of Morehead City, two world-class wood chip loading facilities located in Savannah, GA and Morehead City, NC. Cogent Fibre’s facilities make up two of the three currently active wood chip terminals in the eastern United States, possessing 250,000 metric tons of wood chip storage capacity and ideally positioned in the heart of the abundant US South wood basket.
With two wood chip vessels under long-term charter and company owned orange-peel grabs Cogent Fibre possesses the capability and flexibility to deliver its wood chips on both a CFR and CPT** basis. Cogent Fibre’s vessels provide a unique competitive advantage, as Cogent Fibre is the only wood chip exporter in the eastern United States with wood chip vessels under long-term charter.
