BFSV seminars: Packaging training for people in practice


Start 9 Academy
The BFSV seminars and training courses specifically address the growing demands on transport and end-of-line packaging. These constantly present companies with new challenges and thus also require new competencies. With targeted further training, you can face these challenges calmly.

At BFSV in Hamburg, we train employees and managers from the packaging industry, trade and logistics, and the insurance industry. Our packaging seminars cover the properties of packaging materials and packaging supplies, their transport and internationally applicable standards for export packaging.

Another focus is damage limitation. In the packaging training courses, we therefore impart experience-based knowledge about stresses during packaging, storage and transport. This knowledge can reduce delivery damage and thus avoid complaints.

Packaging manufacturers save costs as early as the packaging design stage. The BFSV Academy therefore offers software courses that can be used to calculate wooden pallets. In addition, we teach methods for calculating heavy goods boxes as well as statistical principles for quality control in packaging production.
