AFPA is here to help companies in Alberta’s forest sector improve the safety and efficiency of transportation.
We do this by:
- Finding ways to improve load efficiencies
- Offering access to training opportunities and resources, through AFPA and other sources
- Establishing best practices in transportation that help Alberta’s forest industry succeed
We work collaboratively with government and other stakeholders to ensure safe and efficient transportation of Forest Products.
We also create opportunities for members to be part of these conversations, and provide resources to support members in achieving their transportation goals.
