Abstract
In the past three decades, food packaging technology has undergone rapid
change and the interest for packaging performance has increased. In
developing countries, the main focus is to drive down the prices,
resulting in primary packaging that often requires a greater need for a
stronger secondary packaging than other countries. Yet at the same time,
it is seldom that the primary and secondary packaging come from the same
supplier. Since the suppliers of secondary packaging in most cases are in
the same country as where the product is packed, quality awareness is
often less since it is a developing country. Moreover, package damages
have been found along the distribution way, and a need to ensure the
quality of secondary packages... (More)
In the past three decades, food packaging technology has undergone rapid

developing countries, the main focus is to drive down the prices,
resulting in primary packaging that often requires a greater need for a
stronger secondary packaging than other countries. Yet at the same time,
it is seldom that the primary and secondary packaging come from the same
supplier. Since the suppliers of secondary packaging in most cases are in
the same country as where the product is packed, quality awareness is
often less since it is a developing country. Moreover, package damages
have been found along the distribution way, and a need to ensure the
quality of secondary packages is requested.
The Master Thesis is a contribution to knowledge within corrugated
cardboard and processes to control the secondary packaging performance in
developing countries. The aim is to develop a process to verify quality
and performance of the incoming boxes of corrugated cardboard for dairies
and other distributors of liquid food. In addition, this is implemented by
an actor in a business relationship formed by two different suppliers,
i.e. a triad relationship. The outcome of this Master Thesis shall
therefore be seen as a tool to help customers to improve their business
and together work for a competitive supply chain by eliminating package
deformation caused by fragile secondary packages. (Less)
