A consultant has been appointed to work confidentially with a softwood processor to examine the potential of data aggregation. The project will include an initial review of the data being generated by the operation and an identification of opportunities for improvement.  The final report is expected to provide a confidential analysis for the contributing company plus a broader assessment of the opportunities that might be generated for other processors.
