Direct and Transparent Marketing to Domestic and Export Customers
FOMS believe the key to the successful harvesting and marketing of the forests is a direct and transparent process whereby owners are able to see all costs and revenues at any stage of the process. Under the FOMS direct marketing process, all costs and revenues are fully disclosed including log sale prices, shipping rates, port and marshalling costs and any other harvest and sale related costs ensuring that a high level of transparency is achieved at all times. There is no margin built in by a third party purchasing at the wharf and all sales are taken through to the export customer.
FOMS have a significant presence in the marketplace and are one of the largest suppliers of logs to domestic sawmills in the Southern North Island and one of the major suppliers of export logs over the Ports of Napier, Wellington & New Plymouth with significant allocated on-port log storage.
