2009 Global Lumber/Sawn Wood Cost Benchmarking Report

Obtaining key cost information on competing regions is a critical part of any company’s operational and strategic planning. With disappointing global markets in 2008 and the expectation that lumber demand will be weaker and even more competitive in 2009, companies will need better information for assessing their options. Against this background, the Global Lumber/Sawn Wood Cost Benchmarking Report • 2008 & Q1/2009 will feature delivered log and sawmilling cost data on actual 2008 results, as well as for Q1/2009, to assist in decision-making.

The report was compiled by PwC, International Wood Markets Inc., and The Beck Group. It covers the largest forest products producers in more than 25 countries or regions on six continents and is based on cost data collected from sawmills in 2008. As in previous editions of this report, comprehensive data on “top quartile” and “average” delivered log and sawmilling costs will be featured, including current costs for Q1/2009.
