Abstract
This thesis aims at defining the improvement areas for packaging and logistics of a long shelf-life Danone Nutricia aseptic product. By literature research and interview, the author is able to build a product mapping protocol to define the sensitive components requiring particular concerns on packaging and logistics. This protocol could be implemented in both academic researches and industry projects. Then based on a representative product, the packaging system and supply chain physical flow are mapped. Also, the critical points of storage and transport conditions throughout 7 representative logistics routes are defined. The results show that the improvement areas include tertiary packaging (corrugated box) handleability, temperature... (More)

Popular Abstract
Defining improvement areas of packaging system and logistics

It is practical to understand the requirements of products towards packaging and logistics and define the improvement areas regarding packaging system and logistics. The requirements are compared with current conditions then the critical points of the packaging system and logistics are defined for further improvement.
