From forest to mill on narrow roads
Transporting round wood may at first glance appear pretty straightforward. Find the timber, load it up and drive away. But, narrow roads to inaccessible sites in the middle of the wild demands some creativity.
Our biggest challenge in forestry is seasonality. Mills run all year, but the course of nature creates difficulties. During rain season roads might be inaccessable, making it hard for trucks to even access the forests. But the demand from the different industries is constant. Making planning very important.
Now, this is what we like the most. By operating your transport and looking at the whole flow, we can plan for different demand and availability. That way, we can reduce costs for both you and us.
Most transport companies set up their operations without thinking it through. A big mistake in our opinion. Our idea is to simulate possible scenarios already in the planning phase. That way we can foresee where the bottlenecks will appear and understand how to improve the flow. In this model we can also count on how much costs we could cut. It becomes a plan or a blueprint if you like, that we follow-up on while operating your transport.
