Packaging Solutions, Logistics and Services

By Elli Karampela

An effective packaging solution must not just protect the products and preserve quality but also make logistics safe, easy and cost-effective, as well as be appealing to the buyers.

Packaging forms a key aspect of logistics to ensure that a product moves safely through the supply chain. Custom packaging solutions have significance because the type of packaging depends on multiple factors such as the products to be packaged, the shipping distance and the shipping mode. In the case of international shipping, the packaging should also comply with the regulations in the destination country.

The role of packaging in logistics

Packaging impacts the costs of the transportation and storage of a product. The chosen packaging solution should help make transportation easier, protect goods, make storage convenient and provide vital information to customers.
