Optimizing forest operations with Timbertrail

Optimal extraction trails

Timbertrail uses digital information to calculate where machines should run to minimize the risk of soil damage and at the same time optimize the harvesting and forwarding work.

More efficient, faster and better planning before harvesting
Flexible integration using the REST API with high solving speed
Maximized harvesting and forwarding resource utilization
Reduced risk of soil damage.
Objective calculation of volume-weighted forwarding distance.

Data-driven input

Timbertrail improves forest operations planning and execution by combining data and user experience for sustainable and cost-effective operations. Using data sources such as:

Soil moisture
Forest density
No-Go areas
Peat areas
Conservation areas

…and much more, to fit your business needs.

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 [...]
