As a forestry logistics solutions company, Timber24 offers customers the following services:
Dedicated 6x6 Volvo ADT's with cranes are used to extract timber to landings that are accessible to normal trucks.
Our fleet of 60 timber trucks operates throughout KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape. The fleet consists of rigid drawbar combinations, carrying 39 ton payloads of all tree species and lengths from 2.4 to 6.6 meters. The fleet also has specialized tri-axle and rigid-tug units that can get closer to the stump, reducing short haul distances.
Loading, Unloading & Materials Handling
All our trucks are loaded by our own dedicated loading equipment. Truck mounted John Deere cranes are among the quickest loading machines in the world. These cranes can neatly and safely load trucks in under 15 minutes with little disturbance to the depot surface. Bell three wheelers, excavators and payloaders are also used for loading, unloading and to handle logs at mill yards and depots.
Supply Chain Solutions
Timber24 has positioned itself as a fourth party logistics company. We act as a lead logistics provider, delivering a comprehensive, re-engineered supply chain solution. By utilising our own resources and technology, and combining these with the services of sub-contracted suppliers, we are able to manage, integrate and provide a comprehensive supply chain solution to a customer. Our ability to adapt our infrastructure gives us the flexibility to adapt to the specific requirements of our customers while keeping the muscle to deliver on our promises.
