Forest2Market, Indufor Partner to Offer Europe’s First Transaction-based Log and Fibre Pricing and Supply Chain Optimization System
April 22, 2015;
Recent announcements of new mill investments in Scandinavia, the Baltic Rim and Northwest Russia have led to concern over increased competition, tighter fibre supply and higher raw material prices. Market concerns like these are often exacerbated by inadequate and inaccurate market data. Poor data leads to the inability to measure performance and assess the results of strategic initiatives. It also makes it impossible to identify performance gaps and eradicate supply chain inefficiencies.
Forest2Market, a leading provider of market data and analytics in the US, Canada and Brazil, and Indufor, a global forest consulting service provider, have formed a partnership to bring the first transaction-based log and fibre pricing and supply chain optimization system to Scandinavia, the Baltic Rim and Northwest Russia.
