From weekly market reports to online buying systems, Hardwood Publishing has been the innovative leader since it was established in 1985. We were the first ( and are still the only ) to feature weekly articles, the first to publish kiln-dried prices, the first to report export prices ( the Hardwood Review Global is now read in over 70 countries ), the first to provide international trade data and analysis, and the first to offer eye-catching color advertising. Our tradition of innovative leadership continues'Introduced in 2004, WoodLogics continues to evolve, adding major new features and benefits. In 2005, we added a past-due accounts reporting system through which sellers can share delinquent account information and limit exposure to bad credit risks. We also added a database of hardwood lumber buyers. Our full-time research staff validates by phone the contact information, volume and species of lumber purchased for each of approximately 15, 000 North American companies in our database of. Future plans include expanding our database of domestic buyers and building databases of buyers in overseas markets. Your prospecting time will be better spent on valid buyers'we're making the first cold calls for you! WoodLogics is still the only widely used, business-to-business exchange system for buying and selling hardwood lumber online. It is accessible by every member of your sales and management team from any computer in the world with Internet access. Our newest publication is the Hardwood Lumber Buyer, targeted exclusively to hardwood lumber buyers in key secondary manufacturing sectors, including cabinetry and flooring. This full-color, bi-monthly is distributed free of charge to a selected group of 5, 000+ buyers and contains key industry information and statistics to assist those that are responsible for making company hardwood purchases. In 2007, we launched the Hardwood Lumber Buyer for China. The publication is completely translated into Mandarin and delivered monthly to nearly 8, 000 Chinese buyers who have previously expressed interest in purchasing North American Hardwoods. For 2008, we will expand the distribution of the English language version of the Hardwood Lumber Buyer to include buyers in the top overseas markets. While we are pleased to offer innovative leadership, being ' first' counts for very little in a market that demands the best. That's why we're proud to be known by the industry as the most accurate source of green and kiln-dried pricing information. Our published prices more accurately reflect true market conditions than any other source.
