Represent European market at the Interpal 2023 Congress in Montreal

This afternoon Rob  have concluded a discussion in the ‘Global Panel on Business, Sourcing, Challenges, and Opportunities’ where he had the opportunity to represent the European market at the Interpal 2023 Congress in Montreal, the premier global wood packaging event held every 4 years. Alongside Steve Rustja from Weston Forest and Alex Battistella from BGS Wood, led by Russ Taylor, we highlighted the current market perspectives from various continents and shared our views.
To summarize it shortly; It’s indeed globally poor market where the real challenges are not shown yet. No short term changes to be expected.
We’re facing extremes in many ways with now a longer extended bear market then we’ve seen before.
Curious how world wide timber market flows will develop if supply and demand change positions again…
