Sending lumber overseas required a different type of container than Jim Hunt was accustomed to working with as planer mill manager at Main Street Forest Products in Maben.
â€śThe containers are set up so that you can you can only load them from one end, which makes them sturdy,â€ť Hunt said. â€śThese (have a) standard container size (of) 40 feet long, eight feet tall (and) about 80 inches wide. Thereâ€™s always a learning curve with these things. It went significantly slower than it usually does to load a flatbed.â€ť
