Random Lengths International Market Report

Seasonal factors contributed to a slower pace in North American softwood lumber exports offshore in early July. European buyers pared new purchases sharply to avoid shipments that would arrive during traditional summer holidays. The rainy season in Southern China slowed overall demand in that country. Typhoon Maria drenched parts of Japan, Taiwan, and Eastern China early this week. Sales of Southern Pine to the Caribbean were steady despite a slower pace. Riots in Haiti drew attention from many suppliers concerned about possible disruptions to deliveries there.
