FOREST, Mississippi – Producing up to 30 loads a day, Eddie Inc. operates two plantation pine logging crews that move wood to a variety of markets — and demand is expanding. “I think this is the only year where we haven’t been on quota,” owner Eddie Harrison said in late 2021. Eddie Inc. has a fleet of 10 Mack trucks to move production. Harrison is currently replacing four ’16 models with five ‘22s, and kept five ’20 models; the five new trucks were supposed to have arrived in December but were delayed until mid-February while awaiting front tires and wheels — supply chain backups strike again.
