Logs

Export of logs

With over 30 years of experience in timbering and forestry, Zvoimpex specializes in the export of round timber, especially to Asian and Middle East countries. Our portfolio includes spruce, pine, beech and fir trees which we buy mainly from Slovak and Czech wood producers.

The entire process from selection of round timber to container loading is closely monitored. The dimensions and quality are always adjusted to the client’s requirements, while the cubing of round timber follows the agreed conversion standards (STN, ČSN, etc.).
