For many shippers in the paperboard and print industries, transportation consumes a disproportionate chunk of the budget. In addition, delivery quality and customer service are becoming increasingly important as many customers (for example, printers) need to plan ahead. Digitization of logistics processes is a valuable opportunity for paperboard and print shippers to reduce transportation costs, improve efficiency, and increase customer service.
With a large number of partners integrated into our transportation cloud, we are able to provide a unique insight into supply chain best practices in the paperboard and print industries. Nine of Europe's ten leading paper manufacturers are already using the Transporeon logistics platform.
