Seminar: requirements for corrugated board packaging for export

Start 9 Academy 9 Corrugated board packaging
Packaging made of corrugated board is preferably used in containers for export shipments, although high climatic stresses occur there.
When shipping in closed ISO standard containers, there is a lack of ventilation, so that moisture and temperature repeatedly damage packages and packaged goods whose corrugated board packaging is not of the required quality. The BFSV seminar addresses precisely this problem.
Vermeidbarer Wellpappschaden im Container
Avoidable corrugated cardboard damage in container
Learning Objective:

Use corrugated board optimally

In this seminar, you will learn which criteria you should use to assess the quality of different types of corrugated board. If you are specifically interested in corrugated board for export, you will learn what to look out for when selecting corrugated board packaging to ensure that it can withstand any container climate.
