When it comes to loads of lumber, one size doesn’t always fit all. You shouldn’t have to pay more for a full load of lumber and deal with the hassle of storing it when all you need is a lift or two.

With Canadian Engineered Wood Products’ Less-Than-Load delivery service, you can order exactly the amount and type of lumber you need whenever you need it, even if you don’t need a full load.

There are plenty of reasons that Less-Than-Load lumber delivery is often the best option for retailers, manufacturers, and other lumber users, but here are the top five reasons it might be the right fit for you.

A More Cost-Effective Option

Sometimes buying in bulk is cheaper than the alternative. But if you don’t need a full load of lumber in the short term, the up-front investment and carrying costs might not be worth the savings you realize by buying a full load. Less-Than-Load delivery gives you a better price and a better return on your investment.

Mix & Match to Get What You Need

Some customers—retailers especially—need to stock a wide variety of materials, and the inventory you might need for one type of lumber isn’t always the same as what you’ll need for another. Less-Than-Load delivery makes it easy to mix and match different types and quantities of lumber, guaranteeing you always have a stock of exactly what you need.
