With over 40 years in the packaging field as a consultant, researcher, and professor, Robert T. Cooksey has prepared the first truly comprehensive reference on distribution. It contains all the technical information required to develop and improve packaging distribution efficiently. Starting from the premise that total packaging design must be combined with an understanding of product distribution, the book addresses how to design packaging for handling and transportation, discusses product protection, and explains how packaging fits into the transportation network. It is intended for students and professionals in packaging, product distribution, and materials handling.show more
