Our export roots date back to 1928 with supply of lumber to clients in the Caribbean. The export trade has evolved & changed over the years, yet the Caribbean remains our most important market. Putnam Lumber has warehouses strategically located near ports of export throughout the US East Coast and Gulf Coast. We work hard to reduce costs & increase efficiencies in all aspects of handling our client's orders. In addition to exports originating out of the US, we also handle direct container load shipments originating out of South America and Asia.
Putnam Lumber can handle all of the necessary logistics from the manufacturer to the country of final destination. We handle all of the inland transportation, cargo handling & inspections at the port of export, ocean transportation, and documentation that is necessary for delivering our products to our client's preferred port of destination. Our operations are positioned close to the port of export to ensure equipment capacity is maximized to reduce the over all cost when shipping over the ocean. Our large shipping volumes ensure that our clients receive the most competitive CIF pricing.
