The packaging supply chain

G.R. Inns,     PEC Partnership Limited, UK

Abstract:

This chapter examines the supply chain as a total system for the delivery of goods from the packing line through to the retail environment and the consumer. The conventional approach to envisaging the supply chain is integrated with considerations of sustainability. The central theme is the use of packaging to prevent damage and the benefits to be derived from bringing all stakeholders together in the supply chain to deliver optimum results.
