Export Logs & Chips

AKD Softwoods produces a broad range of forest products not only for domestic markets, but also for international markets. In addition to timber being exported, the Company exports woodchips and pulp and industrial logs to the Asian markets.

Export logs are those logs which are not to AKD's high sawmill standard.

Through its joint venture with HVP Plantations, the joint venture being called Softwood Plantation Exporters ("SPE"), the Company currently exports woodchips to pulp and paper customers based in Asia, primarily Japan and China. With the evolution of bio-mass energy generation really gathering momentum, there is increasing demand for the Company to also supply woodchips and other sawmill residues to international markets for heating and power generation.

SPE's chips are maintained undercover at the port to ensure highest quality and are free from contamination.

The Company exports pulp and industrial logs from its plantation portfolio to China and Korea for the purposes of construction, packaging, pulping and other end applications.
