Bulk lumber (for real)

I need to build a 10-plex apartment and a 4000 sq. feet home both at the same time. I figured I need 2 semi loads of lumber and plywood. This is close to two containers full if imported. Any ideas of where to buy this much stuff. I've tried Alibaba.com and it has been a very long process to sort through the companies.
