Marketing Services


In tandem with ongoing Radiata pine log sales to both domestic and international customers, Laurie Forestry Ltd has developed a significant reputation for being able to market a wide range of species at high prices. This emphasizes an ability to yield maximum results for growers who have taken their time to grow high value tree species.

Domestic sales are a key component of the Companies operations. Many domestic sawmills have been customers for 20+ years. Sales are ongoing and where possible volumes are offered to local sawmills as a priority.

Exports sales are conducted on a direct to market basis. Managing Director Allan Laurie is a regular visitor to the Eastern Seaboard of China conducting sales to customers on a regular basis. A key partnership with Xaimen Superchain Logistics Ltd ensures sales are ongoing, the customers are supplied on time deliveries and shipping is arranged directly for Laurie Forestry Cargo out of Port Lyttelton and Picton. Tans Pacific Forests Ltd are key NZ Partners for export sales from Prime Port Timaru.

In both cases we see this as adding value to our clients through direct marketing of the end product matching the forest owner with the end user. This includes contracting the sawmill to mill, dry and process the lumber.

Sales currently include plantation lumber being distributed throughout NZ .
