Packaging has become a strategic issue as many companies are facing mounting pressure to achieve cost reductions and sustainability goals. Whether you are designing a pill bottle or a medical device sterile barrier, packaging configurations directly impact every link of the supply chain – from inbound materials to storage and distribution. With material and logistics costs on the rise, there is a tremendous opportunity to optimize both primary and secondary packaging.

In this exclusive webcast from Pharmaceutical & Medical Packaging News, packaging experts from Chainalytics, a leading provider of supply chain intelligence, analytics, and advisory services, will discuss how supply chain packaging optimization can help you realize productivity, efficiency, and sustainability gains. Specifically, Chainalytics will explain how physical packaging attributes – such as dimensions, weight, design, unitization and containerization – affect shipping and logistics costs. In addition, Chainalytics will share conditions to look for in your distribution system to help you identify packaging improvement opportunities.
