TimFlow: digital tracking of wood – Innovation from Romania

Everybody can register on the website of timflow.com and review pictures, documents and routes from loading point to the destination of all trucks that deliver saw logs to Holzindustrie Schweighofer, the first company implementing Timflow as part of its action plan to fight the phenomenon of illegal logging in Romania. The application had several updates: nowadays is available in English and users can now see all log deliveries by truck simply by selecting the specific date and delivery point. This unprecedented offer, unique in the European wood industry, prompted a significant increase in the interest of the general public.

The application started in April 2017; the number of registered users grew 60% in the first two months following the update, and the number of transports checked on the platform surpassed the 3,000 mark – a growth of 75%. In 2017, over the first six months in operation, Timflow recorded real-life data from all the trucks delivering logs to the first company implementing the traceability system. This includes the precise transport routes, a reference to the documents of origin and photos of the cargo. For each of the 16,000 transports (as of October 2017) a unique dataset is stored securely on the Timflow servers. In order to better involve the public and other stakeholders, a dedicated Facebook page was launched as well.
