New Site Could Unravel Excess Paper Tie-Ups

Compiled By Deborah Austin A Web-based service to help paper users manage and sell excess inventory has been launched by technology company Go2Paper, Oakland, Calif. Go2paper.com addresses a commonplace problem -- last-minute print requirement changes resulting in excess paper -- says Go2Paper CEO Mike Conran. "In many cases, the paper sits on the warehouse floor and ties up much needed capital." The site's Paper Marketplace provides end-to-end transaction management tools to serve North America's top 100 paper traders including publishers, merchants, converters, printers and mills. About 10 million pounds of paper are listed. Sellers can post listings anonymously, list at a fixed price or in auction format. The site also offers a Paper Manager function for inventory management; building/hosting of companies' private Web sites; and custom solutions.
