No, users don’t have to enter all the data in the platform. Timber Exchange is an intelligent and integrated system which only requires minimal input by users to generate large amounts of beneficial summaries and documentation.
Therefore most of the data is extracted automatically from different sources.
Part of the data used comes from company profiles of Producers, Forwarders and Sawmills such as
- Personal information
- Company Information
- Bank details
- Staff details
Ocean freight tracking is done automatic in the portal via integration with satellite and shipping lines that gives real time status of the shipment. For this only the container BL number must be indicated or the bulk vessels name.
Product specifications are entered into the system either manually or imported via excel.
From the combination of these different types of data Timber Exchange is able to generate large amounts useful information to users.
