Packaging Logistics research and education integrate several theoretical fields of knowledge, to accomplish effective and sustainable utilisation of resources throughout supply chains.
Packaging logistics covers the design of a product and its packaging, throughout the whole supply chain from raw product, via various actors, to the end user, and on to recycling and recovery.
As both packaging and logistics form important parts of packaging logistics thinking, safe and sustainable delivery can be offered to customers and users at a low cost in an efficient way.
Packaging logistics is gaining industrial and societal interest as it contributes to new insights due its unique emphasis of a holistic systems approach.
A national and international inventory of academic research directed specifically towards packaging logistics reveals only one source, namely Packaging Logistics at Lund University, Faculty of Engineering.
