NHLA2019 | National Hardwood Lumber Association | Top 5 Takeaways

FMS joined the NHLA Convention 2019 in New Orleans. Get to know our Top 5 Takeaways of the event.

1. The NHLA can throw a party

The NHLA remains a strong voice for the hardwoods industry. This year's event brought together companies from all sectors of the industry - producers / suppliers / wholesalers / manufacturers / logistics professionals / technology providers / advocacy groups.

2. Longevity was on full display

From Archie Manning's keynote to the member awards, leadership and family values were center stage. Congratulations to the members celebrating anniversaries. https://www.nhla.com/nhla-membership/100-year-member-club/

3. Creativity matters in this era of tariffs

The ongoing trade war has affected many NHLA members. For example, with the typical export markets under pressure from tariffs, other lanes are opening up as options - India / Vietnam / Southeast Asia / South America / Turkey are open for business. Adapting and taking calculated risks are the way to survive in today's market.

4. Partners make all the difference

The right partners can help navigate market trends. With over 100 years in logistics - specifically for forest products - FMS has helped customers stay ahead of the game.

5. The industry is poised for growth

Knowing that markets are cyclical and that all good (and bad) things come to an end - this trade war will be resolved eventually. The hardwoods industry, with the support of the NHLA, stands ready to capitalize. Investments are being made now to improve yields through NHLA training, picking the right logistics partners, and outfitting the operations with cutting edge technology solutions.
