BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – Port Canaveral on Friday had a discharge of 2,000 metric tons of wood pulp, the main ingredient in making toilet paper, tissues and other paper products.

The ship, named the Flora Schulte, was originally scheduled to Port Canaveral about a month ago but was delayed loading the product in Sweden because of the pandemic.

The ship first arrived in Philadelphia and then sailed to Port Canaveral. The pulp is from Sweden and will be headed to an undisclosed local manufacturer.

The same ship also delivered 5,000 metric tons of lumber, to support the booming real estate market in Central Florida. Each bale weighs two metric tons and they will be discharging 2,000 metric tons in total – which calculates to 4,409,245 pounds of pulp.
