Forico to use Trimble’s Log Inventory and Management System (LIMS)
Tasmania’s largest plantation forestry manager, Forico, will implement Trimble’s Log Inventory and Management System (LIMS) to help manage 174,349 hectares of forests.
LIMS is a software platform that provides management control over all phases of timberland, woodland, yard and mill operations. Forico will use LIMS to help speed contractor payments and load ticket reconciliation, increase timber security, and gain real-time visibility into supply chain interactions.
Forico’s recently released Natural Capital Report valued its forest ecosystem at $3.39 billion and the value of sequestered carbon at more than $8.6 billion. The report, a first of its kind in Australia, set a benchmark for business and industry in environmental stewardship and corporate sustainability reporting.
“Trimble and Forico share core values, including a recognition of the value of sustainability of our natural resources, and we are pleased to support Forica’s efforts to be good stewards of its forest operations,” said Dan Turkington, Business Development Manager, Trimble Forestry, based in New Zealand.
Forico is Tasmania’s largest private forestry management company. For more information, visit https://forico.com.au/about
