Shipping | Forestry Products

With over 100 years of experience in forest products, there's no need to knock on wood.

FMS specializes in forestry - in addition to cargo transportation itself, we have shipping and order management systems to support your product delivery - an extra perk that your international customers are sure to prefer.

Wood

Narrow roads to inaccessible harvesting sites call for flexibility when it comes to planning transport and utilizing equipment efficiently. And if that is not challenging enough, wood is perishable. Moisture combined with heat and insect attacks may damage the fibers in the wood.
Mills run all year but forest accessibility varies over the course of year. For a forestry logistics operation, this means that flexibility is essential.

The forest products industry manufactures a vast range of semi-produced and finished products that are all dependent on innovative, cost-effective supply chain solutions providing transparency, short lead times, stock optimization, reliability, and cargo care.

By connecting the forest with the demand at the mill, we reduce lead times and maximize opportunities for return loads for trucks in our system.

We have the right equipment to handle all kinds of forestry goods, such as logs, sawn timber, wooden panels, wood veneer, or waste wood.

Forestry products often have to cover huge distances from the country of origin to the place for further processing and their final destination. We have the necessary equipment to transship and store bulk commodities and breakbulk cargo, and to transport these materials to inland destinations using multimodal transport services.

 

We offer value-added services such as weighing, packing, repacking, repair, labeling, and quality control.
