The holiday season is without a doubt one of the most beautiful, but also most stressful times of the year. The last thing you need is a global pandemic finding yet new ways to cause trouble: Books, Christmas cards, and wrapping paper are expected to be much more expensive or even delayed due to a shortage of paper caused by the Covid-19 crisis.
While everyone was (and still is) working from home, the paper industry is booming. People use at-home delivery more and more, which leads to increasing demand on all sorts of paper and packaging including carton boxes and wrapping paper. This has led to a shortage of paper, of which we see the effects right now!
Companies in the paper industry are striving for efficiency and lean planning solutions to guarantee the supply to their customers. To minimize the increase in costs and ensure availability towards the consumer market, accurate mid- and long-term planning is essential. This can for example be achieved by improving forecasting accuracy and implementing sales and operations planning.
