Understanding softwood lumber markets through data analysis
  • Logistics

No matter how much wood you sell, delivering it to your buyers on time is crucial. At Olympic Industries, we believe our job isn't complete until our customers have their wood products in hand. That's why we have dedicated teams managing both ocean and overland freight. Our experts oversee every aspect of your forest product's journey, from its storage location to its final destination.

Freight operations are becoming increasingly complex. The demand for vehicles is rising while the number of available drivers and operators is declining each year. Fortunately, thanks to our long-standing partnerships with trucking and rail companies throughout North America, Olympic Industries can ensure that our customers' orders, whether they're for western red cedar, douglas fir, SYP, or SPF products, receive top priority. We maintain direct communication with carriers, allowing us to track your shipment's progress and promptly address any issues that may arise. We're well-versed in the intricacies of international forest product shipping for those involved in wood import and export.

We've developed this level of expertise by integrating logistics into our training and mentorship programs from the beginning. Understanding freight dynamics is a fundamental aspect of our training process—every new team member spends at least a year working in the transportation division before transitioning to the lumber trading floor. This ensures that each of our lumber traders comprehends the importance of freight and possesses the knowledge to effectively serve our wood customers. With Olympic Industries, you can trust that your product is in capable hands every step of the way.
