Seminar: basic knowledge of packaging

Start 9 Academy 9 Basic knowledge of packaging
Packaging is a matter of course for us, because products cannot be transported, stored or sold without primary, secondary and transport packaging. Everyone who produces, moves or sells goods has more or less to do with packaging.
Knowledge of individual packaging materials, packaging materials and their production is elementary for (lateral) entrants to the packaging industry. In addition, the basics of packaging technology are relevant for anyone whose type of packaging is intended to ensure the safe transport of goods.
