Packaging meaning

To clarify what the meaning of packaging is, let’s grab the synonyms. Such as packaging, transport item, load carriers, casks, packing material or packages. So, packaging actually includes all types of packaging and/or carriers needed to move goods in the logistics process.

Within packaging management, a distinction is made between two types: single-use and reusable.

Single-use packaging is meant to be discarded immediately after use. This sounds like environmental pollution, but this form of packaging is often made from recycled materials. Think cardboard boxes or bags. The cost of this type of packaging is often low.

Multi-use packaging is meant to be used several times for the same purpose.Carts, pallets or crates obviously do not have to be thrown away immediately. These containers are made of sturdy materials such as hard plastic and metal. As a result, multi-use packaging is pricier and is subject to a deposit.

Packaging management is about managing multi-use packaging. And this is where ColliTracker offers a simple solution. Let’s look at what can go wrong with multi-use packaging such as load carriers, crates, pallets, casks, etc.


The importance of packaging management

The disadvantage of multi-use is that it is not returned or is returned too late. Companies lose about between 5% – 10% of this type of packaging. Packaging is forgotten, given to the wrong party or even stolen! Much to the frustration of many people working in the logistics sector.

A lot of work is done with logbooks, signatures or other documents. This can go well for a while, provided its administration is consistent. But with many transfers between different parties, it is not surprising that packaging gets lost.
