To protect the commercial sensitivity of Long Term Contracts (LTC), the annual sales plan will only reflect a summary of existing LTC volume commitments. To maintain an open and transparent position on LTCs that are scheduled to expire, FLS will publish a 5 year rolling programme of anticipated volume recovery within each Forest District catchment area. FLS will endeavour to re-market expired LTC volume through a new LTC Tender opportunity, but reserve the right to retain all or part of the recovered volume for sale via our online competitive tenders. The LTC Recovery Volume PDF reflects the anticipated volume recovery in m3obs, separated by Standing Sale and Roadside Product categories.
As a further demonstration of open and transparent business practice, Forestry and Land Scotland publish the sale method used for LTC Volume Recovered in the previous year.
