Timber Exchange provides many tools for managing trade and logistics for those in the lumber export business. Like shared folders (i.e., Dropbox or One Drive), there are efficiencies in a digital supply chain for tracking cargo online, submitting applications to port officials for document issuance, and lots more. As a result, huge efficiencies, time savings and better customer service are just some of the advantages.
Timber Exchange’s software mirrors exactly how companies and lumber professionals conduct their business. This allows users to create their own digital tools and workflows to integrate with leading technologies such as electronic documents and cargo tracking. And more features and benefits continue to be added.
The Timber Exchange software allows manual processes and operations that are spread out, such as in Excel and Word, to be replaced by automation in a single system. Timber Exchange offers more than 90 tools that fit the needs of all parties in a trade, including agents and forwarders, but also allows customers to login and see their own data and deal with their suppliers. This reduces phone tag and delayed communications, as everything in a trade is on the digital platform.
