What we do

Whether it’s pack lots or a full lorry load, LDT and LDT Ireland hold stocks of hardwoods, softwood clears and engineered timbers and can deliver quickly and cost-effectively throughout the UK and Ireland.

Here at LDT, we have a streamlined, direct timber service that imports the finest quality timber products from countries around the world and distributes them directly to a range of customers including timber merchants and distributors, garden furniture manufacturers, bulk furniture manufacturers, joinery companies, door manufacturers, garden centres and landscapers.

Simply make an enquiry for the specific timber products you need and we will send you a number of pack tallies from which you can select a specific pack or packs, enabling you to pick the most appropriate materials for your requirements - less waste, more accuracy, better efficiency.  Our direct trading approach, reliable reputation and robust supply chains enable us to establish positive long-term relationships with our customers.

With full national coverage from sites both in the UK and Ireland, our packs are loaded directly from the quay to the lorry, and then onto the customer, meaning speedy, economic delivery.

We handle all the import paperwork for you. What’s more, our Authorised Economic Operator status at the port means we don’t get bogged down in time-consuming admin and bureaucracy like many of our competitors.

We work closely with all our suppliers, ensuring they understand our robust Chain of Custody requirements and develop their systems and processes accordingly.  Our diligence and robust procedures apply to all the timber we buy, regardless of value or quantity, without exception.  Read more about our environmental credentials here.

This approach enables us to achieve more sustainable results from our timber procurement  and gives our customers peace of mind, not only in terms of meeting UK/EU legislation, but also pride in knowing that we share a common goal in protecting our planet’s future.

LDT and LDT Ireland are certified under James Latham Group environmental and ethical certifications and policies.  You can view or download copies of all these policies and certificates on the James Latham website here.
