However the high consumption markets of their end products are situated in urban, industrialized geographies. This gap poses logistics challenges that require expertise and skills not related to the core industry process.
  • The market dynamics involve constantly evolving consumer needs and threat of substitutes. This has led to immense varieties of paper and paper boards of different types. This sheer complexity of product range poses inventory and logistics challenges which require specialists to handle it effectively.
  • Typical to the paper industry, there is a significant amount of value addition required on the product manufactured in bulk till it reaches the end-user in the desired size, quantity and format. Owing to the cost & logistic efficiencies these value addition activities like cutting, slitting, resizing and repacking are best done near to the point of consumption.
