Wood Products Export Logistics to Middle East Countries

Natural Resources Canada

CPCS conducted a study for Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) that looked at global shipping and logistics options to supply wood products to countries in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). CPCS outlined the GCC market for eastern Canadian wood producers; the current supply chain; services (key ports, liner services, trans-shipment 3PLs); and estimates of cost and transit time between key Canadian ports and European and American ports. CPCS also identified limiting factors for exports to GCC, and made recommendations to move forward.
