Random Lengths International Market Report

Demand from Caribbean markets remained strong in the aftermath of multiple hurricanes that caused extensive damage in some countries. Suppliers fielded numerous inquiries, but struggled to cover orders in some cases amid tight shipping and extended order files at rough lumber mills. Robust returns in North American markets contributed to limited offerings of many U.S. and Canadian species to the Pacific Rim. Prices were firm to higher in Japan and China. European species were a more attractive option for many buyers.
