The packaging industry’s first corrugating database and analytical tool, FisherSolve Corrugating, is now available from Fisher International. The tool is built specifically for box producers and their suppliers, the breakthrough business resource is structured to helps industry professionals optimize their performance in the corrugated packaging marketplace.

“We built the tool because until now, there was no marketplace database with powerful analytics to help corrugated box producers and their suppliers make strategic business decision,” said Rod Fisher, president of Fisher International, adding, “For suppliers, there is the further advantage of FisherSolve’s CRM which is pre-populated with data that Fisher maintains. And, like all FisherSolve products, clients can integrate their own sales data for even more meaningful context and perspective.”

Covering the U.S. and Canada, FisherSolve Corrugating describes every integrated and independent corrugated container facility, with details about products, equipment, ownership, costs, corrugator widths, speeds, fluting styles, production capacity, equipment suppliers, key personnel contact information, and much more. Because all this data is aggregated into a comparative structure by experts who understand the corrugated packaging business, users can analyze it with flexible and powerful filters and query tools to answer their important business questions and present their findings in charts, tables, graphs, maps, cost curves, etc.

For containerboard and corrugating box producers, FisherSolve Corrugating is a strategic decision-making tool for understanding supply-demand balance, market share, M&A targets, vulnerabilities, delivered cost benchmarks, and customers’ box supply chain.
