The service I received from RW Freight Services when they carried out my import from Sweden was very good. The driver arrived exactly on time and their transport consultants were very helpful and friendly. I will certainly be using them again in the future with any other shipments.

Imports of illegal timber fall

Tags: , ,


Five major timber importing countries have made progress in cutting contraband wood from their markets since 2010, argues a series of reports published by Chatham House.

The analysis — covering Britain, France, Japan, the Netherlands, and the US — is based on point-of-origin data for timber imports. For example, countries and states with a high risk of illegal logging and timber laundering would hurt an importer’s rating.

Overall, the report estimates that 4% of timber imports by volume are still at “high risk of illegality”, at an estimated value of $7bn (£4.5bn). Of the five countries assessed, Japan has the highest proportion of high-risk imports (at about 10%), mainly because of large volumes of trade with China, Russia, and Malaysia — all of which have problems with illegally sourced wood.
