Flow optimization using Woodflow

Flow optimization with Mellanskog

Efficient logistics planning is a key factor in the profitability of forestry. Studies at the Forestry Research Institute of Sweden show that the use of decision support with optimization for fundamental decisions on allocation of timber volumes can improve planning and reduce logistics costs by 5-15% and reduce emissions of harmful greenhouse gases with corresponding numbers. The use of decision support requires a high level of knowledge about how the problem should be formulated and what goals are important, the data that is relevant and what uncertainties and limitations that has to be taken into account.
