We use a variety of modes of transportation for our raw materials and finished products. We rely primarily on
third parties to meet our transportation needs, but also operate our own systems.
In 2011, our private truck fleet included 261 trucks that traveled over 9 million miles. Our truck fleet seeks to operate
as efficiently as possible. In many units, fuel efficiency is monitored monthly and shared to create competition for improvement
among the drivers.

time reduction training, initiatives to increase the miles per gallon, fleet upgrades to more modern vehicles, and other
energy saving opportunities. As a consequence of these programs, significant reductions in air pollutant emissions have
In addition, we strive to maintain the safest fleet program as possible. In recognition of these safe practices,
Weyerhaeuser's Department of Transportation Manager recently received the "Private Fleet Safety Professional of the Year"
