Friend of mine is a shipper based out of Yokohama.

He specializes in wood.

Pre-crash imports were in the 6 to 7 million cubic meter range.

The wood imported is from Russia and was being used for construction, packaging, paper, and consumables like disposable chopsticks.

This year (2009) was barely 1 million cubic meters.

Construction is down, similarly much of the paper/packaging demand was for exports.
