Sweden: Escalation in problems of lumber exports to Asia

17.03.2017 − 

Problems facing Swedish suppliers concerning the processing of their softwood lumber exports to customers in Asia, which first occurred in the middle of the fourth quarter 2016, have further intensified over the course of the first quarter. In addition to the continued limited availability of containers and short supply of freight space, strikes by port workers in Gothenburg, Sweden, to enforce an overtime ban, led to additional delays concerning exports.
