What is Wood Flow Optimisation 2016?
Wood Flow Optimisation 2016 is this regions premier technology event providing insights into innovations being developed and employed by leading forestry, wood products and transport companies. The objective, with 30-40 percent of delivered log costs being contributed by transport is to improve efficiencies through the wood supply chain. The FIEA event is run every two years in both Australia and New Zealand.
Over 300 forest managers, harvesting contractors and wood transport companies in the region participated in FIEA’s Wood Flow Logistics event in June 2014. Local companies were keen on checking out just what innovations had been developed and how these new technologies were being employed in processing and transporting wood – from harvest operations through to the manufacturing plant or port.
An array of new decision support tools being used successfully in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland, Brazil and Chile by larger forest products companies were discussed as part of this 2014 technology series.
Wood Flow Optimisation 2016 will again provide an independent platform for local companies. It will be a unique opportunity to review the very latest tools & new innovations that have been developed, adopted and used to improve planning, logistics & operations within the wood supply chain.
If you are interested in being involved in Wood Flow Optimisation 2016, you are welcome to get in touch with us!
