Published: 29 April 2016

If you download and print our latest export reports for sawn timber and logs you'll notice a few changes. Prima facie, you'll discover a sleek modern design, simplifying presentation while eliminating needless clutter. This includes a revamped colour scheme to help you easily identify graphed statistics if printed in black and white.

In addition to the comprehensive statistics provided on our previous reports, we've incorporated some valuable extras, including an overview of FOB export value for all major markets (page 1). Further to this, we've expanded our reporting for NZ ports to now include sawn timber volume.


Removed


To ensure the prompt publication of each report (immediately following the release of government statistics), we've removed commentary previously provided in our monthly Export Report Analysis. All referenced data is now included in each report.


Hints & Tips


Grasping the layout and data provided in each report can take some adjustment. Here's a few hints and tips to lend a hand...

Sawn Timber Report

Be sure to check the footnote on each page for useful information. In this particular instances, it states 'All statistics for ASEAN include Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand & Viet Name.' Similarly, a footnote summary is provided for East Asia stating, 'All statistics for East Asia include Hong Kong, South Korea, Macau & Taiwan (excludes China).'

Pie Chart

The pie chart on each report includes a blue highlighted segment. What does this mean? It's a visual reference only, emphasising the largest market for each commodity.

Pie Chart

The first 3 graphs (page 1) share a common title - 'FOB Export Value (NZD ml)'. Check the subheading of each chart (in grey) to identify specifics. In addition to this, an explanation of graphed amounts are usually found in the legend or title of each chart. In this case, figures are displayed in NZD ml.



Survey Response


Earlier this year we asked our export report subscribers to tell us what they really thought of our monthly publications. Responses were submitted anonymously to encourage accurate feedback, enabling us to build upon strengths while identifying areas for improvement.

We're happy to report all feedback was extremely positive and we would like to thank everyone who took the time to complete the survey. We've used this information to form a foundation in which to build our new reports, acknowledging we don't need to reinvent the wheel to enhance the quality and value of each report.


What's Next?


Based on feedback received, we may critique each report to improve and enhance further. Please let us know if you have any comments or recommendations relating to our new publications.

In the coming weeks we hope to expand our reporting beyond forestry for the first time, publishing an additional two export reports for wine and honey. Watch this space.
