INFORCHAIN
Information tools for more efficient forestry-wood chains

The Forestry Wood Chain (FWC) consists of forest owners, machine entrepreneurs, wood-procurement organisations, sawmills and pulp and paper mills linked by a complex production and business network. Efficient and market-driven operations within this network are important, particularly in the face of increasing international competition. There is a strong demand from the industry for the development of fast and accurate information flows between all the actors in the FWC.

Objectives
The rapid advances in information technology (for example, Internet and wireless telecommunication) offer new opportunities to improve information management and decision support in the FWC. This project aims to increase the competitiveness, employment and environmental concerns of the European FWC through the application of these new technical opportunities to improve information flow and decision support.
