Abstract

The SWF supply chain investigation was initiated following discussions regarding truck congestion experienced at the Myamyn mill and at the Portland Grain Corp terminal. The research teamís approach towards congestion was to treat it as a symptom of a complex problem with multiple potential causes.

The purpose of this report is to map the SWF log and wood chip supply chain and the technologies used in order to improve understanding of the companyís and its partnersí operations with the aim of uncovering potential gains at a supply chain level. The philosophy behind this approach is that most aspects of the supply chain are known to the stakeholders but aggregating them in a report can generate additional insights.
