Frequently Asked Questions

Many inquire about our platform’s operation and evidence collection process. For any wood product, the tree species and origin are pivotal. Our timber traceability commences with your manufacturer, delving into their previous supplier details and completing transaction evidence for both parties. The process then extends to trace their supplier’s preceding tier, and so forth, until the original log supplier is identified, ensuring the integrity of the entire chain.

Upon importing European Oak into the manufacturer’s country, our system adeptly gathers pertinent import documentation. This includes logging permits, certificates of origin, transaction contracts, invoices, bills of lading, and customs clearance and tax payment documents of the importing country. The collation and organization of these documents culminate in the creation of the requisite evidence chain for legitimate sourcing.

For locally sourced timber produced by manufacturers, in addition to inter-enterprise transactions, some fast-growing materials are cultivated by forestry or individual farmers. These tree species include poplar, eucalyptus, pine, and more. Our system can trace back to individual farmers, collecting information about the cultivation of timber as forest products and its subsequent purchase and processing by certain companies. At this point, the farmers’ felling permits and purchase invoices are preserved as crucial evidence.
