In July this year, Xinhuanet wrote “this kind of” waste “is valuable! The report quickly spread all over the Internet, and in less than a month, the purchase price of waste paper increased by more than 10%, and the waste paper became valuable. Oddly enough, waste paper suddenly plummeted on July 18, falling hundreds of yuan in a short period of four days, but soared again on July 22, four days later, with a maximum increase of 150 yuan/ton a day.
I believe the bosses of the packaging factory also have the experience that the yellow paperboard of the carton factory has always been a hot product for waste paper merchants, and its price is also inflated like balloons. It has risen to 1800 yuan/ton in August, and it has also been recycled door-to-door.
The signs of domestic waste paper shortage have become more and more obvious, and after the farce performance from July 18 to July 22, the means for paper mills to rely on rapid price adjustment to attract orders are becoming more and more ineffective. As the so-called internal and external troubles, the import of external waste stops, and the shortage of national waste, with the arrival of the turning point of breaking the balance between supply and demand of waste paper, a new game between paper mills is also coming quietly.
The purchase of waste Paper moves forward: the inevitable trend of waste Paper Recycling in the Future.
The move forward of waste paper acquisition is not an old topic, but what many enterprises are doing. The frequent fluctuation of raw material prices brings great risk to the upstream and downstream enterprises. In order to stabilize the price fluctuation, each link of the industrial chain is also looking for some new development models. The advance of waste paper acquisition is not only a means for papermaking enterprises to balance the price of raw materials, but also an inevitable development trend under the tense form of waste paper raw materials.
However, there is a question here: if paper mills are allowed to go to residential buildings and supermarkets to recycle waste paper, can their own supply of waste paper be guaranteed? Apparently not.
Losing at the starting line: the forward move of acquisition is a competition of all-round strength.
According to the different front-end sources, national waste recycling can be divided into three channels: commercial recycling, residential community, and factory channels. The proportion of the waste paper output of these three roughly follows the proportion of 4:3:3. But in fact, the complexity of waste paper recycling sources is far more than these three, and its recycling complexity is much more complex than one-way door-to-door sales such as opening the door.
First of all, the source of waste paper recycling is more complex, here we borrow a company’s recycling model map
Casually cite a few details:
1. Door-to-door recycling can not only be used for waste paper but must be recycled in all categories. Other available wastes must be considered in advance.
two。. The recovery methods of the large-scale complex can be divided into resident and door-to-door collection, at least the resident personnel and the place of origin input are not light.
3. The acquisition relationship with enterprises is purely a trade relationship with the highest bidder, and they have to compete with other waste paper recyclers.
In addition, when enterprises face the waste terminal, they also have to face a lot of hidden rules, when some individual junk king relies on short, sand and water, and even secretly steal guns and other means to obtain the superior price of waste paper, how to balance the bottom line? There is a “red light running theory” behind this: everyone runs a red light, but if you don’t, you will be left behind and become Bad money drives out good.
And there are price fluctuations in waste paper, an inadvertent profit may not be enough to compensate for a certain fluctuation.
These are only a very small aspect of the recycling industry. There is a system behind waste recycling, and profits are extremely weak. People who do not know how to do so may not even be able to make ends meet, let alone ensure the stability of waste paper recycling channels. Behind it, in the final analysis, it is the competition of two strengths: financial strength and operating strength.
The capital is easy to understand, but the strength of management is an almost invisible ability that can be seen and touched, but even if it cannot be learned, it may not be able to learn well, and it is bound to be accompanied by sound mechanisms and investment in the construction of echelons of talents. the gap between large factories and small factories accumulates at each node, forming a gap.
Then again, if you have the ability to transform casually and do some other industries, can’t you make money? why do you have to fight hard in the sunset industry of papermaking?
A glimpse of the Leopard: thinking about the New system of Papermaking.
As the balance of domestic waste paper shortage is broken, the competition for waste paper acquisition is bound to be more fierce. The so-called waste paper wins the world, but if the backward paper mills want to get involved in the front-end waste paper recycling, they may have to face the problem of competition between individual factories and collectivized enterprises with system-building capabilities, and their disadvantages are still as obvious as they are on the paper side. In a way, this disadvantage may be the cause of a new round of knockout wars.
From the point of view of the entire packaging industry, this kind of competition also exists everywhere. Why do the orders of the major customers of the brand go to the large packaging group, don’t they also like the synergy advantage of the group? To change the way of thinking, as an individual of a third-tier factory, although there is always room for survival, how to achieve cooperation or system operations to live better is also a question worth thinking about.
