Exporter Directory Expanded
The most popular internet resource for importers of Southern Yellow Pine – SFPA’s SouthernPineGlobal.com – now welcomes 38 exporter members of the Southeastern Lumber Manufacturers Association (SLMA). This expanded directory results from the SFPA/SLMA Southern Pine Council partnership to improve Southern Pine lumber sales internationally.
Three features of SouthernPineGlobal.com make SFPA and SLMA suppliers easy to find. Exporters appear in a directory categorized by lumber manufacturers, treaters, laminators and sales agents/distributors. Importers can search sources of supply by more than 40 categories using the export product locator. Importers may also submit a trade lead from the purchase inquiry page. The trade lead is forwarded to more than 200 SFPA and SLMA export contacts. So far this year, SFPA has distributed 102 export trade leads.
“These expanded listings of suppliers will increase the availability of Southern Pine lumber worldwide,” noted Richard Kleiner, SFPA’s senior director of international markets. “Working together, SFPA and SLMA member producers can now more efficiently interact with importers and other customers around the globe,” he added.
Over the last two months alone, more than 1100 searches for various Southern Pine products have been conducted on the site. Users are spending an average of about three and a half minutes per visit searching products, well above industry averages.
