Supply Chain

Georgia-Pacific (GP) is one of the world’s leading manufacturers and marketers of building products, tissue, packaging, paper, cellulose and related chemicals. With renowned brands such as Quilted Northern® and Angel Soft® tissues, Brawny® and Sparkle® paper towels, and Dixie® tabletop products, it’s estimated that at least one Georgia-Pacific consumer product is used in 85 percent of homes nationwide.

Before these brands are welcomed into each household, it takes an experienced team of supply chain professionals to make the process possible. The collaborative team is involved with demand, production and distribution planning; mill and facility operations; transportation contract negotiations and operations; warehousing and logistics operations; strategic sourcing; procurement and more.
