Hudig & Veder transports a wide variety of cargoes. From E-scrap to minerals, from petcokes to steel pipes. A cargo that we regularly transport is that of woodchips. Woodchips are small- to medium-sized pieces of wood formed by cutting larger pieces of wood such as trees, branches, logging residues, stumps, roots, and wood waste. The process of making woodchips is called wood chipping and is done using a wood chipper.  There are different types of woodchips:

  • forest chips (from forested areas),
  • wood residue chips (from untreated wood residues,
  • recycled wood and off-cuts),
  • sawing residue chips (from sawmill residues),
  • and short rotation forestry chips (from energy crops).

Unlike the smooth, uniform shape of manufactured wood pellets, woodchip sizes vary and are often mixed with twigs and sawdust. Woodchips are similar to wood pellets, but are less expensive to produce.


Use of woodchips

Woodchips may be used as a biomass solid fuel and are raw material for producing wood pulp. They may also be used as an organic mulch in gardening, landscaping, and ecosystem restoration; in bioreactors for denitrification and as a substrate for mushroom cultivation. The chips can even be used for playground surfacing and barbecuing.
