A reliable and legal tracing system solution for  timber

 

To provide a single platform to all stakeholders in the timber industry for an effective management of timber traceability. Exottec is an inter-connectivity platform for real time data exchanges, which monitors and ensures an uninterrupted legal tracing system for all timber products. We are aiming to become in a few years the world leader in providing innovative solutions for managing traceability of timber products for loggers, sawmills, governments, certifiers, traders and users.

LUMTRAX provides you with a step by step management of raw timber processing, such as sawing, peeling, slicing, drying as well as traceability.

From counting the trees to the recipients of the logs, LOGTRAX manages all stages of production to ensure traceability from end to end.

With GOVTRAX, government authorities have the ability to monitor forestry operations in real time, tracking any fraudulent activity from cutting to exports.

CERTRAX is a complementary module to GOVTRAX which will be used by independent certifiers to reinforce traceability.

Hi everyone,

 

My name is Bertrand Makon. I am the person behind the EXOTTEC innovative concept.


The idea came from a combination of having spent sixteen years in the timber business and my passion for IT.

At the beginning, I was driven by the idea to find solutions in order to simplify the processes and bring efficiency in carrying out my job. However the EXOTTEC project in its present form took shape as a result of the challenges I faced managing logging operations in Africa whilst being in Canada.

 

In 2014, I realised that my approach was fully in line with the FLEGT (Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade) issue enacted by the European Union, to which a number of tropical timber producing countries were already committed by VPA (Voluntary Partnership Agreements).

Nevertheless we can see that the implementation of the FLEGT and VPAs in tropical timber producing countries is a failure, despite the political will and substantial investment by donors. (See references in the margin).

So, my team and I are here to share the work we have done, which is a new approach, fully inclusive, for the effective management of issues regarding law and traceability in tropical timber trade. We present the EXOTTEC concept, an integrated legal tracing system solution for timber industry and trade. We invite all stakeholders in the tropical timber business to contact us for any further information.

 

Thanks in advance for your interest.

 

​Y. Bertrand Makon
