A typical catalog or magazine publisher spends 30% to 40% of their total costs on paper alone. Because each dollar you spend on paper really adds p, it’s a smart investment to get expert input into your paper buying strategy and practices.

Lufkin Strategic Procurement can provide you with an in-depth review of your current practices and develop a highly effective strategic program tailored to your specific supply requirements and business objectives.

A Comprehensive Evaluation

Your paper Procurement Strategy would include the following:

  • Publisher vs. printer purchased paper options
  • Mill direct purchases vs. merchant or broker purchases
  • Balancing contract and spot purchases
  • Consolidation strategies
  • Adjusting to changing markets
  • Centralized vs. decentralized purchasing considerations
  • Contract waste allowances

Your Paper Purchasing Strategy can be developed for you to implement either with or without our consultative assistance.
