In August 1986 Kockums shipyard delivered MP bolagen´s fourth carrier vessel –Boxer. This vessel was an essential addition in order to cope with wood and wood chip freight for the wood chip facility in Ystad, which had greatly increased its output.

The vessel is well suited for wood and wood chip transport thanks to its high side walls and twin ramps (forward and aft on the starboard side – 6, 35 metres wide) which permit a fully developed roll on/roll of system.
