Where we work

We deliver our products to over 30 countries throughout the world.

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.
