Paper Distributor Business
« on: May 05, 2008, 06:33:11 pm »
Hi guys,

This is my first time to post here, and would greatly appreciate any input you'd share regarding a paper distributor/supplier business. For a startup business with minimum capital, we're not planning to manufacture our own paper but instead be the "middleman" between paper manufacturers and offices/schools.

Right now, we're trying to acquire information on:
(1) How do schools/offices, and other institutions acquire paper?
(2) How to acquire paper from manufacturers? Do they currently have exclusive distributors?
(3) Paper manufacturer's list of products
(4) Expenses/operating costs (e.g. holding area, transportation, people resources)
(5) Total investment costs
(6) ROI

If you guys can help in answering these questions, or would want to add more things that we should consider, it will be of great help!

I think printers and publishers are the largest buyers of paper.  :)

printing press, offices and schools can buy directly from importers, manufacturers or big time dealers kasi aside sa mga agents nila para sa mga dealers may mga agents din sila para sa market na sinasabi mo gaya ng schools and offices. di mo kailangan ng big volume para bumili ng wholesale price. dozens of a kind lang or big bundle they call "rema" or something that sounds like that.

the odd is most probably kalaban mo sa market supplier mo. or bigger than both of you.
