Inaugural report from Forest2Market do Brasil shows effects of heavy rains on timber prices

July 28, 2014
Author: Suz-Anne Kinney

Forest2Market do Brasil has released its inaugural timber price benchmark for the forest products industry. It is the first transaction-based report of timber price and price components available in the Brazilian market.

“Results from this report quantify the effects of market trends on price,” says Marcelo Schmid, manager of Forest2Market do Brasil. “From April through June of this year, for instance, as heavy rains impeded harvests in Paraná and Santa Catarina, pine pulpwood(8-18 cm) prices increased by a volume weighted average of 4 percent. Our subscribers receive insights like this from the benchmark, and they can use the information to adjust their plans during similar events in the future.”

For the initial benchmark, Forest2Market do Brasil reported data for five market areas. “As our subscriber base grows,” says Schmid, “the report will expand to include more regions and products. We are off to a great start.”

Forest2Market do Brasil subscribers also get to see a breakdown of delivered costs, including stumpage prices, harvest costs (cut, skid, load) and freight. The report provides a level of detail from which buyers and sellers can make high quality operational decisions.

Forest2Market do Brasil is a Brazilian company managed and staffed by experienced, well-respected forestry supply chain experts. Its parent company, Forest2Market, provides data management expertise. Forest2Market President and CEO, Pete Stewart, remarked: “We’re pleased to help Forest2Market do Brasil bring this benchmark to the Brazilian forest products industry.”
