Abstract
An increasingly competitive environment, technological advancements and globalisation are a few of the factors placing higher demands on today’s company activities, e.g. development, production and distribution processes. Company activities have hereby become a complex system, even more so if one company is seen as part of a network of companies. The aim of this article is to present and elaborate on an approach that deals with these matters in an integrated manner – packaging logistics, where the logistics systems are studied from a packaging perspective. This is carried out through putting package definitions and logistics definitions into a model framework based on Porter’s value chain and Christopher’s network theory. Rather than... (More)
An increasingly competitive environment, technological advancements and globalisation are a few of the factors placing higher demands on today’s company activities, e.g. development, production and distribution processes. Company activities have hereby become a complex system, even more so if one company is seen as part of a network of companies. The aim of this article is to present and elaborate on an approach that deals with these matters in an integrated manner – packaging logistics, where the logistics systems are studied from a packaging perspective. This is carried out through putting package definitions and logistics definitions into a model framework based on Porter’s value chain and Christopher’s network theory. Rather than studying packaging and logistics separately, the integrated concept of packaging logistics will give a more complete perspective in problem solving and research. The contribution of this article is to theorise and introduce suggestions to define the subject of packaging logistics. (Less)
