The paper industry is an intense, fast-moving environment with little tolerance for downtime in operations running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Paper is produced in several manufacturing steps (pulping, manufacturing, converting), then distributed and may finally be recycled. Each step of the process involves materials handling activities, where raw materials, paper, other paper products and waste paper have to be moved, stored, loaded or unloaded.
