Finding Value In The Forest
Posted: May 10, 2011 10:13 AM by Aaron Levitt
Lumbering Along With the American housing market still in the proverbial toilet, lumber seems like an unlikely portfolio candidate. However, growth abroad could help return American lumber exports to prominence. Worldwide demand for softwood lumber rose nearly 18% in 2010. Global consumption of wood and lumber products for the first quarter of 2011 increased 20% versus last year. Both China and Japan have seen voracious demand for timber since early 2009. Already China is short 100 million cubic meters of wood, or roughly double major producer British Columbia’s entire yearly output of timber. Some analysts estimate that China will need to import about 182 million cubic meters of wood by 2015. This is an increase of 70% from its current timber import levels. These continued increases in demand for raw logs have some analysts predicting that lumber prices could rise from today’s $300 per thousand board feet to $500 within the next three to five years.
Dunnage Stamp vs. Finished Stamp….. We are hearing from more and more companies, needing heat treated lumber for export, that have been misled about the correct HT export stamps they need. ¬†If a company sells you lumber that has been stamped with an IPPC mark, and then you cut that piece of lumber up and make a crate out of it, you will probably be in violation of the international ISPM-15 laws. Your product could get detained at the foreign port of entry, and possibly be quarantined and then destroyed. There are two types of IPPC stamps for heat treated lumber. Make sure you have the right one. Boone Valley Forest Products is audited monthly and authorized to use the correct IPPC stamps on our export crates and lumber. We help companies everyday and can help you too. Give us a call before you make the wrong purchase!
Source:¬† American Trucking Association White Paper – January 2011
On December 23, 2010, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) proposed seven changes to the current hours of service (HOS) rules. FMCSA has proposed a number of changes to the maximum/working hours for truck drivers that will impact shippers in a variety of ways. These changes include:
- A reduction in the maximum driving time from 11 hours down to 10 hours per shift.
- A two consecutive night rest requirement for drivers using the restart provision. Today, drivers can reset the calculation of their weekly work totals to zero after a minimum of 34 consecutive hours off duty. The proposed rule would extend that period to ensure that it included two consecutive nighttime periods from midnight to 6 a.m. This substantially increases the required number of hours off-duty for nighttime drivers who currently use the restart provision.
- A reduction in the maximum working time to 13 hours, generally within a 14 hours shift.
- A mandatory rest break(s) of at least 30 minutes within 7 hours of first coming on-duty and at least 1 hour of total break time in each shift.
- A rest period restriction that would limit drivers to using the above restart provision only once in each 7 calendar days.
These changes will have significant impacts on the trucking industry, including fleets and drivers.¬† Fleets will experience reduced productivity, thus increasing costs. FMCSA says that the changes will reduce carrier productivity, and thus cost the industry roughly $1 billion per year. (The $1 billion also includes training costs.)
