Random Lengths International Market Report

North American softwood lumber exports offshore faded at a steeper rate than was evident in October. Seasonal slowness crept further into the European market. Demand in North Africa and the Middle East was insufficient to pick up the slack. Importers throughout the Pacific Rim scaled back purchases, citing fear of heavier downside risk through the fourth quarter. Sales of North American structural panels to offshore markets subsided. Buyers made inquiries, but often chose to wait and digest recent shipments.
