New Shipping Alternatives for Liquid and Granular Materials
- Tuesday, 12 June 2012
Liquids and granular materials can often be of high weight and mass. A firm seeks new shipping alternatives to handle both kinds of material. Alternative means of shipping product, inter-plant, between plant and distributor, to the retailer, and ultimately to the consumer are required. Ideally, the new shipping alternatives would result in less packaging, less costly packaging, and greener (more environmental and sustainable) packaging. A possible example is substituting paper packaging for plastic.
