Optimal placement of landings in harvesting operations

Optimal placement of landings in harvesting operations

Loglanding finds the right landing location with the best conditions for maximal harvesting efficiency.

“Loglanding is a great tool to find alternatives for landings that are suitable for the road and harvest site.”

Use Loglanding for forest operations

Use Loglanding for forest operations

Create optimal landing

Using open source or owned data, LogLanding helps with finding the right landing with best conditions. Utilizing Data-driven planning for placement and size of the road side storage.

Identify optimal placement of road side storage.
Compare options and analyse landing placement.
Accessible length of road side storage.
Identify and calculate the effect of multiple landings.
Consider power lines, conservation areas, road class and more.

Scenario analysis

Utilize scenario analysis on all harvesting sites to understand how they get affected by soil moisture content and availability in different seasons. Examples of scenarios:

Evaluate the effect of seasonal variablity.
Create multiple landing alternatives.
Potential savings in forwarding distance.
Ensure landing size is sufficient.
Evaluate location and effects of landings.

Utilize Loglanding togheter with Timbertrail for optimal landing and extraction route.

Loglanding ensures we are considering all alternatives when planning for the road side storage location.

Available and developed for global use. Utilize open source data or company specific data.

How is Timbertrail used in forest operations?

In long-term sustainable forestry, it is a matter to take care of the land when the forest is harvested. Harvesters and forwarders must be used in such a way that the soil is protected to the greatest extent possible from both compaction and more serious soil damage. This means [...]

Transport efficiency with Analyzer

Complexity and challenges To analyze the transportations done during a time period to obtain KPI for transport efficiency is valuable to determine how to better plan for future improvements, identifying inefficiencies and where to allocate resource to reduce costs. SCA is Europe’s largest private forest owner with 2.6 million [...]

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 [...]
