New training course on packaging for transport


The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is running a half-day training course on Packaging for Transport.

The course, to be presented by Emeritus Professor Harry Lovell, will be held in Melbourne July 22.

The course will focus on the protection of products during transportation from the producer to the consumer. It will examine the various systems of transportation in terms of the potential hazards and the protection to be afforded by packaging. The course will also examine the question of fragility its determination and its role in the selection of protective mechanisms.

Within the distribution chain, the course will identify the hazards and those steps, which are necessary in order to provide adequate protection. It will look at methods of hazard assessment and how these can be addressed in practical terms. The different forms of transportation will be examined and the protection which is required.

Examples will be drawn from a wide range of products ranging from small unit packs to bulk containers.

The course is aimed at people involved with product distribution, packaging design, transportation and materials handling.
