Abstract
The transport of wood and biomass from the forest to customer sites accounts for more than 50% of the delivered costs. In both Spain and Australia, the transport is performed mostly by trucks, although in some cases, transport by rail is used in a second or intermediate phase. The article presents a comparative analysis of the legal conditions, characteristics of the haulage companies and their integration in the supply chain, as well as the technical conditions of the vehicles employed in both countries. Also, the article addresses the technological innovations that facilitate the transport management to optimize routing and the stock of wood and biomass at loading areas.
