HISTORY

In 2000, Forest2Market was started by Peter J. Stewart to bring transparency to the wood and fiber supply chain.

The forest and wood products industries, $65 billion in size, face many difficult market, environmental, logistical, inventory and management issues as they navigate their long supply chain. As a neutral party, Forest2Market databases and market profile analytics are invaluable tools for these industries when they are dealing with:

  • Pervasive supply anxiety
  • Growing environmental pressures
  • Substantial fragmentation of the resource base
  • History of antagonisms and suspicions among industry participants
  • History of anti-trust actions against major forest products companies

In the 1990s, Stewart often found himself making multi-million dollar decisions without the support of solid data. Frustrated with the lack of transparent, neutral and accurate market price information, Stewart started Forest2Market in 2000. Based on a business model of collecting transaction data (timber sales contracts, scale tickets, orders and invoices), Forest2Market agregates the data collected, reports market prices, provides cost and performance benchmarks, supply chain analytics and expertise and strategic consulting.
