I’ve hauled all types of paper, food, booze, construction supplies, live plants, bagged mulch, wood shavings, and on and on. If it will fit in the trailer we pull it all across this country. When leaving Maine it’s almost always paper, and today was no different. The paper this trip is tissue in it’s basic form. This was made at the Baileyville Mill.
I picked up this load in Hermon Maine today at a warehouse, but I was at the mill a couple weeks ago during a snow storm. Wood chips are brought in large trailers from area wood lots. The unloading process is to back the trailers onto a ramp, unhook, then watch as the entire trailer is tipped up and dumped.
The chips are processed into pulp then pumped into the paper machines.
Here are the finished rolls in the warehouse. They are huge!
Can’t tell just how big they are? Compare them to a forklift.
They are so big I can only fit 5 in my 53 foot trailer!
The next truck you see ask yourself…whats in that trailer?
