  • Russian lumber export sets new record

    Etiketter: Wood
    Russian sawmills exported a total of 2.27 million cubic meters in March, an increase of 6% from last year. In the first quarter, exports increased by 3% to 5.33 million cubic meters. Russian lumber exports are now in a clear increasing trend, says Jenny Wessung, CEO Woodstat. The collapse of the ruble is of course a major contributing factor, but to this we can add falling domestic consumption and new sawmills in Siberia. We expect a continued increase in exports over the next few years. / Woodstat
