How Did Our Journey Start

“I come from a family with a 50-year history in the timber industry, where I managed the supply chain and global logistics to clients in the US, MENA & Far East. I came to appreciate the vital role that wood plays in our everyday lives. In Sweden, wood contributes to 10% of all exports and jobs.

However, this experience has also made me aware of the timber industry's vulnerability to disruptions and volatility, which can have a significant impact on sawmills, distributors and industrial end-users like pallet, furniture and bed manufacturers.” - Amir Rashad, CEO/Founder

With a deep understanding of the timber industry, Timber Exchange was founded to streamline supply chains and eliminate bottlenecks in the industry. We are committed to supporting stakeholders globally with timber market data, automation, and outsourcing to enhance timber trade operations.

Our Mission:

Our mission is to empower industrial companies in the global forestry sector by breaking down barriers in global trade. Through providing market insights, streamlining paper-based processes, and facilitating payments and compliance, we aim to help these companies compete and thrive in a volatile global market. Our ultimate goal is to enhance efficiency, remove obstacles, and drive success in the industry.

Our Vision:

We envision a revolutionary global timber supply chain ecosystem where stakeholders seamlessly collaborate, creating a sustainable and transparent future for timber trading. The ultimate goal is to conserve the global timber industry resources and increase its profitability, for the timber trade to be transparent and less affected by the industry volatility.

Our Values:

At our core, we value continuous innovation, efficiency, and unwavering dedication to sustainability. Our commitment lies in empowering the global timber supply chain through these values, ensuring a positive impact on the forestry industry.
