China: Railway deliveries expected to sharply reduce timber imports through ports

China: Railway deliveries expected to sharply reduce timber imports through ports

How will the competition between railway transported timber and port timber affect the market structure in China? Some market participants say that the future wood processing of timber coming to China through ports will be reduced by at least 50%! And that's not an alarmist point of view. This is the general trend noticed in the past years.

First, the global timber major suppliers are changing their national policies regarding exports of logs. Russia, Ukraine and other countries plan to ban large-scale log exports and promote domestic wood processing!

Second, the Russian wood exports which rely on the Belt and Road policy directly reach domestic mainstream cities. Currently, there is direct access to Heilongjiang Harbin, Shaanxi Xi'an, Shanxi Yuci, Henan Zhengzhou, Jiangsu Xuzhou, Shandong Zibo, Gansu Lanzhou, Wuwei, Qinghai Xining, Inner Mongolia Wulanchabu, Hunan Changsha, Hubei Wuhan, Guangdong Dongguan, Fujian Xiamen, Jiangxi Ganzhou, Zhejiang Hangzhou, Jiangsu Xuzhou, Sichuan Chengdu, Chongqing, etc., almost directly covering most of China!
