Contribution to society of corrugated packaging

The logistic and transport systems would collapse. Handling would be messy, inefficient and costly because products need transport and logistics packaging. Selling products through modern distribution channels would be impossible...

Alternative packaging would not be able to perform the same functions as corrugated in such an efficient way. In most cases, alternative packaging is less space-efficient with possible higher weight and a relative lower choice in sizes. In addition, competitive materials are often made from non renewable fossils resources.
