Logistic Automation

The platform will automatically revise pricing to show delivered to the customer's destination. If you are on the line with customers with the click of a button can get any FOB mill to delivered price based on your own freight rates.

Customer Insights

Detailed reporting on all orders for pricing, product type, volume, shipment, and more to give you better insights into where your products travel, the best markets for your products and highest value customers.

Logistic Management

Real-Time order tracking, automatic notifications of shipment or delay and one-click request for updates are handled by the platform directly to the customer. No more chasing trucks or tracking cars. Production delays can be sent to all impacted customers with the one click.

You will see the buyers profile, credit rating, purchase behavior and logistics details so you always know who you are selling to. Qualified wholesale buyers, distributors and retails customers buying in full truck and carload quantities are the only buyers allowed onto our platform.


Total Transparency

Full transparent trades on anything you sell in the platform. Who you sold the products to, what you sold it for, where it was shipped and when it delivered to facilitate a transparent market and also reduce the amount of speculation and market volatility. 

Anywhere and Anytime

The beauty of an online marketplace is that it is open anytime and available on any digital device. Just visit and you can be buying or selling lumber. We will be launching native mobile applications next year, but until then just use your web browser on your mobile device.
