Random Lengths International Market Report

North American softwood lumber sales to the Pacific Rim remained subdued, as demand was slow to regain its stride after year-end holidays. Traders waded through myriad distractions. The U.S. federal government shutdown created minor complications with shipping through ports, but exporters reported few major disruptions. The Brexit vote drew widespread attention, but trading in the United Kingdom was business as usual. Sales to the Caribbean lagged the pace commonly attributed to the start of the year. Buyers concentrated on selling existing inventory before seeking replenishment. Demand for North American structural panels was lackluster.
