Produce sales units

This service can also be supported by the customer

LFS can 

  • ​Fill tipping trailers directly with green logs via conveyor from the wood processor. This is the cheapest way as nothing needs to be stored for seasoning and be taken out of the store for delivery. But in this case you need to have a shelter to season the logs.

 

But maybe you don't want a heap of dumped logs but want to move units after delivery, e.g. from a shelter to the boiler (house). In this case or if you need large quantities it may be well worth considering the services listed below:
