PLS International, a division of Port Blakely, supplies responsibly-sourced logs from the Pacific Northwest and the U.S. Southeast to destinations worldwide. PLS International purchases logs from Northern California to British Columbia on the west coast and throughout the U.S. Southeast for export to Japan, South Korea, China, and India. In April 2018 they hired Core industries to receive and load out southern yellow pine logs on a vessel bound for overseas market. Core constructed the plan in which they used a material handler to unload, tally and stockpile the logs and then load out the logs onto a vessel traveling to Nanao, Japan carrying 4783 tons of timber. Due to CORE’s experience in wood and exporting, Core was the perfect fit for this project.
