Cind, using technology from the defence and security company Saab, has entered into an agreement with BillerudKorsnäs for the measuring of pulpwood at five facilities in Sweden. With this arrangement in place, Cind has now signed nine contracts during its first year of operations.
Cind has developed a system that massively streamlines the process of volume measurement and remuneration in the timber industry. BillerudKorsnäs has now signed a five-year rental agreement for five facilities in Sweden.
“Our equipment creates major efficiency gains within volume measurement, which is something that the timber industry recognises,” says CEO Anders Nyberg. “The technology from Saab negates problems common to other technical solutions. We are extremely happy to have signed nine contracts during our first year of operations.”
“BillerudKorsnäs works actively with suppliers at the leading edge of technology in our ambition to provide and develop a sustainable pulpwood supply. We chose CIND owing to their solution which utilises unique stereo camera technology. In part for the compact camera equipment solution, in part because of the innovative development possibilities afforded by automatic volume calculation of pulpwood stacks on a vehicle,” says Stig Jonsson, Senior Specialist Wood Logistics at BillerudKorsnäs Skog.
The calculation equipment makes use of Saab’s stereo camera technology, which can provide highly accurate precision volume calculations of, e.g. pulpwood loads and individual timber logs. The technology facilitates the rapid measurement of precise volumes of pulpwood while still on the lorry. The business model involves Cind renting out and maintaining the systems.
