During August 1986, Kockums Varv 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 meters wide) which permit a fully-developed roll on/roll off system.
