A PARTNER YOU CAN DEPEND ON
DSHwood is a dedicated wood trading company dealing in logs, lumber and woodchips from European forests. While we do not own any of the forests, industry or equipment, we manage the entire trade process from harvest to end-user supply, buying directly from our suppliers and selling directly to the end-users.
We supply significant volumes of high-quality softwood and hardwood to major markets across the globe. Our sales organisation is well-equipped to take advantage of fluctuations in different markets to the benefit of our customers. A successful collaboration with a number of sawmills and traders in all regions enables us to trade logs, lumber and biomass.
DSHwood originated in 1967 as a trading office of the Danish Forest Association, the trade organisation of private forest owners, to develop export opportunities for Danish wood. In 2000, DSHwood became an independent subsidiary of the Danish Forest Association.
We believe that a stable, long-term relationship is critical to keeping up a secure supply through the value chain. We are well integrated in the European forestry and wood business and represented by our own staff in all sales markets all over the world.
Economies of scale make us the most efficient in all aspects of purchase through logistics and sales, enabling us to meet all our customers’ requirements.
Therefore, DSHwood focuses on long-term relations with both customers and suppliers, relying on building a relationship of trust.
Forests continuously feed the world with woods of all types. Wood for building, wood for interiors, wood for decorations and tools, wood for art and even wood for essential life necessities such as cooking and heating.
The future is wood!
Our deep insight into wood and its many applications is an asset to the world and an asset on both sides of the direct supply-demand spectrum.
Fulfilling our mission calls for professional knowledge, skills and experience with everything in the process. We must understand the forest, the wood itself and the forest owner as well as the sawmill, the builder, the architect, and anybody else who works professionally with wood. This makes up our total competencies.
We strive to utilise our unique value through long-lasting loyal partnerships with both customers and suppliers.
This calls for the best employees in the field, which is why we offer a professional global working environment with strong options for personal development. The working environment and the professionalism from our employees guarantees the perfect match between the variety of supply and demand of wood.
At the same time we, as traders, connect the forest to the world’s need for wood and must always be agile and adapt to the situations in the market. Only by adapting to the needs from our suppliers and our customers and adopting their view of the situation can we fulfill our mission in a perfect way.
At least, and it goes without saying, we always do it in a trustworthy way. Simply because we are who we are.
Message From The CEO, DSHwood
Rasmus Grønborg Bak
Forests also provide fuel for cooking and warmth, medicinal plants, food, wildlife habitat, clean water, spiritual and cultural touchstones, and for many, the means to earn a living.
Managed responsibly, forest products like wood can be taken out and value from them can be added – all without disturbing the forests themselves.
This is why we at DSHwood only trade in wood-related products, either from certified forests or with a traceability being sourced from legal sources.
We call it Sustainable Forestry!
