Paper transport by ROAD – requirements and challenges

World Printers Forum and OPHAL webinar


The delivery of paper and board from the mill to a printer or converter generally requires the use of road vehicles for all, or a part, of its journey. (Very few printers and converters can receive paper by rail and this would be a separate subject.) Road transport of paper rolls requires specific knowledge and this session allows the different participants along the supply chain to gain important insights into underestimated topic.

In the webinar, Hendryck Mackowiak from transporter Pohl GmbH and Martin Gercke from Hylte Paper will highlight common practises, challenges and important insights to ensure paper in rolls are transported safely and economically to their final destination. Aspects will include the type of vehicles used, load patterns and their securing, along with sustainability. Ingi Rafn Olafsson director of the World Printers Forum will moderate this session.
