Challenges for Our Business for Both Supplier and Buyer

As end of next year there will come some new paper capacity in North West Europe, this will influence the export market to Asia significantly. On the other hand the local collection is going up in China, this has also an impact on the demand of paper for recycling from Asia. How to match this ….

There are still other challenges for export, closing down of old capacity in China, renewing import licenses, black out periods with non arrival, new capacity that will start up. (more details...)
