The past two years have been a dynamic period for Australia’s leading paper products distributor PaperlinX, with the company experiencing: • a demerger from Amcor • listing on the Australian Stock Exchange • three major acquisitions, including Spicers Paper • the sale of four business units, including Edwards Dunlop Paper; and • the complete restructuring of three major operations.
Coping with on-going change has required the company to develop flexible logistics management systems.
With a market capitalisation of around $1.7bn, PaperlinX is one of Australia’s top 100 companies. It has 4,000 employees, operations in 12 and sales in over 40 countries.
PaperlinX has a vertically-integrated operating structure. It produces more than half of its pulp requirements from its own local mills and manufactures a wide range of products.
The company manages its supply chain and markets products through its own worldwide infrastructure.
