Lumber.io matches retail lumber buyers like construction, building and fencing companies with the best priced and fastest delivered pile of lumber direct from the sawmill. Buyers don't need to worry about insurance, freight delivery or storage costs, these are all calculated with an algorithm. The price they commit to on the purchasing screen is the final price. Once an account is created and preferences are remembered it takes a total of two clicks on login to buy the most cost or logistics efficient lumber for their unique location.

This is much better than the alternatives of calling every sawmill to shop for price when you need wood or buying from a lumber wholesaler that gauges you on price. We act like a lumber wholesaler but don't need to pay outrageous customer acquisition and commissions to salespeople.

Currently, wholesalers and sawmill sales teams are graded and rewarded on the wrong metrics resulting in a terrible buying experience. Salespeople are comped 50% commission...

Currently, wholesalers and sawmill sales teams are graded and rewarded on the wrong metrics resulting in a terrible buying experience. Salespeople are comped 50% commission on arbitrage opportunities, incentivizing them to shoot for the highest price possible especially in times of buyer desperation. At Lumber.io we take a flat commission on all purchases, incentivizing NPS as a metric, an incredible buyer journey and incredible support.

We provide free market sentiment analysis by one of North America's top future's analysts on all things lumber for the buyer - information currently monopolized by large lumber mills.

On the other side, we want to build a SaaS tool for lumber mills which predicts the best lengths to produce each month based on geography and production capacity, this would create a two-sided marketplace. However, we are currently focused on creating an amazing buyer experience first as finding a high volume of supply is the easy part.
