Delivery Manager Module

The Log Inventory and Managements System Delivery Manager tracks all information related to your timber, log, wood and fiber deliveries. Such information will include arrival date, time and location, timber source, truck, gross and net weight, species of wood, form of wood (raw logs, cut logs, chips, etc.), and so on.

All information is cross-validated against related database tables, and is immediately available to other modules (inventory, payment, etc.) in real time. LIMS is much more than a wood procurement system; it is comprehensive business management software for the forestry, wood products, pulp and paper and lumber industries.

LIMS relates all deliveries back to their original sources and hence tracks chain-of-custody and other sustainability (SFI) certification.
