With a total of 1.02 million m³, Sweden's January softwood lumber exports remained unchanged compared to the same period last year. Remarkable in this respect were first and foremost the deliveries to the US which increased by over 800% to 60,000 m³.

Main customer Great Britain bought 3% less totaling 220,000 m³ whereas deliveries to Egypt gained 77% to almost 100,000 m³.

Another significant decrease was observed for deliveries to Netherlands (-14%; 72.000 m³) and China (-31%; 62,000 m³).
