Investment a welcome sight

After being on the wane for many years, it’s nice to see some investment being done in the forest products industry in the Nordic region.

Pulp and biorefinery projects have been announced in Finland with one biorefinery already in operation. In Sweden, Södra has announced some large investments, particularly at its Varo pulp mill and now SCA has just announced a project for its Östrand pulp mill near Sundsvall. This bodes well for the transport/ logistics sector.

We also feature the full technical and social program along with the exhibitors and sponsors for PPI Transport Symposium 21 in Bremen.

About the IFPTA

International Forest Products Transport Association
Transport, Handling, Warehousing and Distribution of Forest Products

An international association for forest products logistics professionals

International transport of forest products demands integrated efforts of many disciplines. Foresters, mill managers, chemical and clay producers, traffic and logistics managers, must all talk to and work with rail and trucking representatives, marine transporters, stevedores, port and terminal operators, and manufacturers of handling equipment.

IFPTA seeks to establish a permanent framework to ensure continued vitality, within which experience and information can be shared in a professional and timely manner. We can only foresee that our respective disciplines will each grow more specialized, demanding ever more efficient coordination to keep us all working together effectively.
