WEEK ENDING 10/13/17
The tone of trading slowed this week as buyers continued do their best to wait out the market. SYP lumber appears to be giving ground now, while supply continues to be tight on some DF items. OSB is still firm, but secondaries are beginning to show more availability than in previous weeks. Trucking continues to be a real issue – even loads that are prompt are taking extended time to arrange trucking, and at considerable premiums. Rumors that FEMA is paying top dollar in the southern markets for prompt trucks appear true as supply is ultra tight and prices are climbing. Plan ahead or be without wood my friends!
