A TO Z directors through their previous employment activities have participated in various ways in dealing with logs and timber through quality and physical control of logs.
Logs and timber products are handled in a number of different ways by various lumber concerns depending upon the nature of their business and the handling facilities that are available. Even though our operations must be flexible enough to tie in with the varied practices of our customers, there are a few fundamental precautions and risks we recognize in all log operations.
A TO Z directors participated in collateral management services to timber awaiting exports, and secured distribution facilities for plywood and other imported timber products. A TO Z addresses the key issues with respect to timber exports such as, are they:
- Credibly certified as coming from well-managed forests?
- Monitored and verified as of legal origin and legally compliant?
- Inspected against contract specification?
- Tested against technical norms?
Through a range of independent ‘compliance assessment’ services, A TO Z provides responsible buyers, conscious governments and other stakeholders in the forest and timber product sector with the assurances they seek to make informed purchasing decisions, to improve forest control, or to just forge documented opinions.
