Wood pellets loaded at Port of Panama City?

Wood pellet exports through the Port of Panama City added 353,085 tons to the port’s 2008-09 fiscal year cargo total ended in September, enabling the port to post an overall cargo increase for the year. The port only began exporting wood pellets in late 2008. The Panama City port saw declines in Kraft liner board, a major export, and copper, a principal import. The Port of Pensacola saw declines in imports of bulk construction materials, a port mainstay.
