Transport & Energy


With thousands of trucks and log trailers travelling on forest roads and highways across Canada, whether during forest operations or on their way to supply mills, transportation can account for up to half the delivered wood costs for the forestry industry. That percentage may rise as fuel prices climb, transportation distances increase, and the industry continues to commit to more sustainable practices. 
FPInnovations’ research and innovation in key aspects of transportation is opening further opportunities to enhance competitiveness, improve safety, and reduce the environmental footprint of the forest value chain. Download our brochure.
