The paper landscape is changing

The paper industry has seen fresh challenges and unexpected changes due to the Covid-19 pandemic, while the push for sustainability efforts is also significantly affecting the industry.  The new Hyster® white paper explores these key challenges in greater detail.

  • Challenge 1. Being sustainable is hard – The paper industry is demonstrating a growing commitment to recycling and using alternative energy sources. How can the newest generation of electric lift trucks help businesses to prove their green credentials to customers, while still getting the job done?
  • Challenge 2. Keeping people safe – With pressures to increase productivity, load sizes and stacking heights, the safety of the workforce is a high priority. Combined with correctly trained operators, the right materials handling equipment will support operational safety, and comfort
  • Challenge 3. Reducing product damage – Paper rolls are getting bigger (and heavier), though the space they are stored in isn’t. To improve efficiency and reduce damage, paper operations need to specify trucks with the right capacity, and the correct specialist attachments
  • Challenge 4. Productivity in tough environments – Lift trucks that are not properly cleaned out and maintained can overheat, causing downtime, and increased maintenance costs. How can this be avoided with the right materials handling equipment designed for challenging conditions?
  • Challenge 5. Going digital – Technology is being implemented at various stages of the paper production process. From robotic lift truck solutions, through to digital fleet management, there are several ways that materials handling equipment can support the move into a more digital world
