The Timflow GPS-monitoring system of Holzindustrie Schweighofer allows instant digital monitoring of wood supply, from forest to sawmill. More than 400 trucks delivering saw logs to the company’s mills are equipped with the GPS device that tracks its exact route from its loading place to delivery at the mill.
