The core of Vanport’s business is softwood lumber. Cutting for both metric and imperial markets, our focus is supplying consistent high quality forest products. Vanport has also partnered with hardwood mills on the US East Coast to bring high quality furniture and flooring grade hardwoods to the Asian Pacific Markets. The majority of our products consist of Douglas Fir, Western Hemlock, and various Pines – but include softwood species native to and plantation grown in the Western US, Canada, Europe, South America and the Russian Far East. We also handle the export sales and marketing for multiple hardwood species such as Red Oak, Maple, Alder as well as Aromatic Red Cedar. Vanport has an established proprietary grade rule for manufacturing all export products. We oversee the quality standards for grade, moisture content, size tolerance, and general appearance. Vanport also offers custom cutting programs, cutting to order, and custom drying of specialty products.
