The US market, including the Central Florida region, has been witnessing rising demand for lumber in recent years, driving an upsurge in such imports. Plans are underway for Binderholz GmbH (Binderholz), a family-owned, leading European timber company with operations in Austria, Germany and Finland, which utilizes cutting edge technology and production methods, to increase its imports to meet that demand. To that end Binderholz has teamed with GT USA, the US arm of Gulftainer, a privately owned independent port operator headquartered in the UAE. The first consignment from the European market leader in solid wood products and innovative construction solutions delivered to the Canaveral Cargo Terminal (CCT) at Port Canaveral in Florida, USA. As part of its services to Binderholz, GT USA is also assisting with storage and inventory of the lumber at the terminal, along with loading it to flatbed trucks for delivery inland. Binderholz had already been using the GT USA Wilmington DE, terminal with great success over the last year.
