What we do

Timber Trading

Though ACE EXIM started dealing in Timber only a decade and half back, we graduated from containerised cargo to full ship loads in a matter of few years. This is owing to our rigorous quality control practices with representatives on both load ports and destination ports. This ensures the best quality cargo supply to the buyers and hence no complaints and a satisfied customer.

ACE EXIM has a separate team in the organisation to handle timber thus ensuring; flawless operations, on-time payments to suppliers, regular shipments, maintaining track of cargo and keeping everyone in the loop informed. The management is responsive and proactive in decision making to satisfy the requirements of the suppliers along with the demands of the customers be it a saw mill or a plywood factory.

ACE EXIM has its offices and representatives in all the places where the cargo is being sourced from; Malaysia, West Africa (Ghana, Cameroon, Gabon, Liberia etc.), Central America (Ecuador, Costa Rica, Columbia, Guyana, Suriname etc.), North America (U.S.A., Canada). We have a ship chartering arm to take care of the logistics and shipping both for bulk shipments and containerised cargo.

ACE EXIM is committed to environmentally sustainable trade thus we are striving to increase the proportion of harvested and plantation timber in our portfolio.
