The Role of Packaging in Transportation

Have you ever wondered about the journey your favorite beverage travels from the manufacturer to the store shelf and finally to your home? Packaging plays a significant role in the transportation of consumer goods products.

Packaging enables products to be moved, sorted, stacked, and shipped while maximizing space. Transportation is made more efficient, the carbon footprint is lowered, and costs are reduced with lightweight plastic packaging. It also allows products to be transported long distances while maintaining freshness and preventing waste from spills that might otherwise occur.

The whole supply chain is influenced by packaging! Lightweight plastic packaging makes transport efficient – from filling, storing, transporting, the point-of-sale, consumption, and recycling.
