Their lumber processing, from logging to final preparation, consists of many different varieties of wood including red oak, white oak, ash, poplar, pine, cherry and many others.

Linden Lumber’s process of producing lumber is a complex “art form” that takes years of experience and knowledge, ensuring that lumber makes it from the forest to final preparation as smoothly as possible with the highest-yield possible. With over 250 employees involved in their daily operations, they saw room for improvement in inventory and shipping activities.

Linden Lumber proceeded to seek out a mobile computing solution that would help maximize productivity while being rugged enough to within stand the various conditions in the mill.
