01/07/2020 /  Launch of the new UAB Juodeliai project www.miskovezis.lt underway

Starting from 1 July this year the wood processing company UAB Juodeliai has launched its new project www.miskovezis.lt. This is a completely new approach in the wood processing market where a website operation is based on the principle of auction.

UAB Juodeliai purchases round timber all over Lithuania and has a large volume of wood for transportation in each municipality. The www.miskovezis.lt website publishes information on round timber quantities available for transportation. Registered carriers and those with contracts can reserve the desirable quantity of wood simply by pressing a few buttons.

The aim of this website is to expand the network of active carriers and to save wood transportation costs. Wood carriers have the possibility to monitor and reserve the closest available round timber in real time. This website makes it possible to save on transportation costs, generate more earnings for carriers and, last but not least, protect the environment by avoiding empty voyages!

The annual Dubai WoodShow 2020 that was due to be organized on 16–19 March 2020 is being postponed for the second time in a row and is scheduled to take place in autumn this year, on 7–9 September.

Dubai WoodShow is a famously large-scale exhibition that attracts over 240 companies from 45 countries around the world.

During this year’s exhibition the wood processing company UAB Juodeliai plans to present its new world’s fastest short packing elements production line to be commissioned this autumn. We are hoping that the exhibition takes place this year and we will have our chance to present our stand in Dubai.

18/05/2020 /  UAB Juodeliai the first in the Eastern Europe to become member of Pallet Professional Committee of CFLP

Seeking to strengthen its positions in the Chinese pallet industry, the wood processing company UAB Juodeliai joined the Chinese Pallet Association in April this year. Its membership, as well as its participation in the association’s activity, will potentially help to gain more insight into the Chinese pallet industry culture, engage in certain decision-making processes, submit recommendations and thus become even more attuned to the clients’ needs with regard to sustainable raw-material supply chain.

By opening a new production facility housing the world’s fastest short packing elements production line in autumn this year, UAB Juodeliai is ready to become a guarantor of stability for the clients’ supply system. China, one of the largest global economies, proves to be increasingly important for the assurance of development sustainability of the wood processing company UAB Juodeliai and helps to promote the name of UAB Juodeliai and of Lithuania around the globe.
