SOBI’S MARKET DEMANDS FOR WOODS

SOBI receives the ample wood supply from the community-based cooperatives, KWLM (Koperasi Wana Menoreh Lestari) in Kulonprogo Yogyakarta and KHJL (Koperasi Hutan Jaya Lestari) in South Konawe, Southeast Sulawesi. Cooperatives supply customers with different product types through certain purchase methods.

a. FSC timber (teak, mahogany, albizia and rosewood) is sold to furniture companies with FSC Chain of Custody (CoC) certification in the form of logs (unprocessed). Cooperatives will create a contract with such companies specifying among other things:

  • Volume needed (m3)
  • Delivery period(s)
  • Type, length, diameter and cluster (super/non-super) of the logs
  • Amount of down payment (first installment) and schedule of the remainder payment
  • How the grading is done

And then, from this document, purchase orders (PO) will be derived, with volumes and periods (weekly or monthly) that is adjusted with the cash flow condition of both cooperatives and the buyer.

b. Non-FSC timber is sold as logs or as processed boards or blocks. For half-processed timber, cooperatives sell them as building material (roofing, window, door) to smaller shops. Payment is done in full upon delivery.
