What is Timber Traceability?

Timber Traceability refers to the ability to track the origin and movement of timber and timber products through all stages of the supply chain, from the forest to the final consumer. This process involves documenting each step of the journey to ensure the legality and sustainability of the timber sourced.

For supply chain traceability companies, implementing timber traceability systems is essential for verifying compliance with environmental regulations, combating illegal logging, and supporting sustainable forest management practices. Effective timber traceability provides transparency, enabling consumers and businesses to make informed decisions about the products they purchase and the impact of their consumption on forests and communities around the world.
