Cooperations of small-scale forest owners such as forest management associations have proved to be a suitable instrument for collaborative timber marketing over the past years. These cooperations are affected by discontinuances regarding their flow of communication and material which has been showed earlier by several process value analyses. Interviews with responsible managers showed that the flow of information is already more efficient and unnecessary steps in the process flow have been reduced somehow but there can still be improved a lot. This paper provides an overview on technologies and logistic systems which are able to rationalise the added value chain within the small-scale forest. A classification of various methods was made by distinguishing systems of wood labelling and wood administration. To show the ability of implementing these systems in small-scale forest, SWOT-analyses were performed at a technical and organisational level. A case study was carried out in a small forest in Burgenland which is often characterised by its narrow sites. Within this study the deviation of a GPS measured harvester route to the actual middle of the route was recorded. Deviations, exceeding property borders could be observed. This leads to the conclusion that handheld-GPS-driven harvester navigation with digital maps is basically possible, but cannot meet the demands of such small slots.
