Mar 13, 2018, 10:15 AM
11:00 AM
The Great Lakes/MidStates Newspaper Production Roundtable series returns to America East after a successful first year. The first part of this split session will focus on Pre-Press issues and challenges. Topics will be suggested, but this is an open forum to discuss best practices and/or challenges. This is a great opportunity to learn from your peers and share your successes.

Key Highlights

Six items to consider before moving to a centralized processing center

  • How will scheduling be impacted?
  • Do you have the processing / system power to handle the increased workload?
  • Are your systems prepared for integration?
  • How will handle the consolidated workflow?
  • Do you have a disaster recovery plan in place?
  • Have you prepared ahead of time?

Be prepared for a rise in aluminum plate prices.  As potential tariff’s are discussed, this can have a direct impact on the price of plates.   How to prepare?

  • Revisit your recycling contracts and make sure they are tied to a metal index (ex. London Metals Market)
  • As the value of aluminum increases, be sure to weight outbound loads to your recycler
