New tech for paper firms


Pakprint, a Brazil-based provider of transactional solutions for the paper industry, has launched a new product in the hope of expanding ecommerce in the sector.

The new electronic tool, known as ‘e-suppliers’, is designed to help improve relations between suppliers and customers by allowing users to buy inputs and services electronically.

Brazilian paper suppliers Ripasa, Klabin and Suzano will be the first to adopt the new system but it is expected that paper heavyweight International Paper will follow suit by the end of the year, along with fellow Brazil-based companies Votorantim and Papel e Celulose.
