Packaging

What is Packaging?

An essential part of logistics and transportation is the packaging. Often overlooked, this process is important because it protects and serves the goods that are being delivered. A few reasons why packaging is important in logistics is because:

  1. Protection: The main function of packaging is to protect the good. If a good is damaged during transportation, not only must a replacement be shipped but the reputation of the company is also affected. Important information about the product is also given on the packaging.
  2. Convenient storage and transportation: Goods can be stored as well as delivered with ease and convenience with the help of proper packaging.
  3. Increase sales: Attractive packaging builds your brand and brings in customers.
