Random Lengths International Market Report

North American softwood lumber sales gained momentum in many offshore markets. Railcar and trucking delays, however, hampered transportation of shipments to ports. Sales of Southern Pine clears were unusually active in Northern Europe. Buyers in the Caribbean resisted Southern Pine merchantable quotes, but most relented amid diminished inventories. Japanese demand outpaced availability of Douglas Fir and Western S-P-F by a wide margin. Sales to China were slow to regain their stride after importers returned from New Year observances.
