And I presume the wood was cut by locals and traded for Roman goods. They must have gotten it for a cheap price if they could afford to ship it all the way to Rome. I wonder how long it took for that trip...

Actually, according to the link they were shipping wood from forests on the upper Rhine down to this port in modern day Netherlands.
