Packaging can be described as a coordinated system of preparing goods for transport, warehousing, logistics, sale, and end use.
Packaging contains, protects, preserves, transports, informs, and sells. In many countries it is fully integrated into government,
business, and institutional, industrial, and personal use.
Material handling includes the movement, storage, control, and protection of materials, products, and packaged goods
throughout the process of manufacturing, distribution, and disposal.
Packaging is an important function, enclosing materials and products for distribution and movement.
