West Fraser ships products primarily to North American and Asian markets. As MDF is very sensitive to transit damage, particular care is taken during shipment to ensure it's appropriately protected during transit.
The majority of shipments to North American markets are moved via rail in boxcars, in highway vans or intermodal vans. Long length panels are shipped via flat deck trucks using special tarping techniques to ensure proper product protection. We use several re-load facilities in the Western US. These re-loads allow us to be a "just-in-time" supplier to our customers, while efficiently combining long haul rail shipment with local truck delivery.
West Fraser also ships MDF products to Asian markets. Due to the sensitive properties of MDF, we currently ship to export markets by container only. These shipments all move via the Port of Vancouver to customers in Korea, Taiwan, China, and Japan.
