Transportation of timber and lumber from Ukraine to the EU

We transport timber and lumber from Ukraine to the EU.

Wood is one of the most popular building materials. There are always high demands for this type of product, since the quality of the materials depends on durability of structures, which are built of wood. That is why it is very important to pay attention to the conditions of transportation of wood and lumber, to subsequently avoid additional material costs.

Often transported timber: round timber, boards (edged and not-edged), lumber, sleepers, bars, decorative items made of wood.

We have extensive experience in the transportation of lumber. Our task is to ensure the delivery of timber, taking into account all the nuances of timber transportation (conditions of storage, weight and thickness of the carcass, the need for treatment of wood against pests, etc.). The most used vehicles for the transportation of lumber is a truck with a load capacity up to 27 tons, which allows to transport up to 40 m3 in one semi-trailer.

How we carry out the loading of timber and lumber?

Logistics company Corcel has extensive experience in the transportation of timber and lumber, so we will provide a reliable fastening of your cargo into the vehicle.

Planks, boards are better to be laid into stacks. If the planks are above the boards, our team will increase the height of the board and additional fastening as well.

Regardless of the type of transported lumber it is especially important to follow safety rules during transportation. In case of poor-quality fastening of the timber, not only the side of the trailer may be damaged, but the driver cab. All boards and other lumber must be fastened tightly to each other to ensure there is no movement of cargo within the vehicle during transportation.
