Abstract
Packaging has a significant impact on the efficiency and effectiveness of retail supply chains, where improvements can be achieved through the adaptation and development of the concept of packaging logistics. In order to enable these improvements, models are needed that facilitate evaluations along the supply chain and show the activities involved in the packaging logistics process. The knowledge and awareness of the importance and potential of the packaging logistics activities along the supply chain is low. Case studies involving companies from the Swedish and the Dutch retail industry were conducted to identify packaging logistics parameters along the retail supply chain. The concept of packaging logistics is explained, and the paper... (More)

The knowledge and awareness of the importance and potential of the packaging logistics activities along the supply chain is low. Case studies involving companies from the Swedish and the Dutch retail industry were conducted to identify packaging logistics parameters along the retail supply chain. The concept of packaging logistics is explained, and the paper discusses how a systematic evaluation model from a packaging logistics perspective should look like. Finally, a conceptual analysis model for packaging logistics is presented. (Less)
