Effective and efficient packaging can significantly improve the performance of companies by generating value and by reducing cost and the negative environmental impacts in supply chains. Packaging Logistics: Understanding and Managing the Economic and Environmental Impacts of Packaging in Supply Chains uses a systems approach to examine all the essential roles within an organization, from the purchasing of raw materials to the production and sale of finished products as well as transport and distribution.
