Other issues that concern the distributor and store manager are cleanliness and hygiene.

18. Packaging forms only a small part of the total solid waste (TSW) stream. In the UK, packaging waste represents approximately 6% of non-agricultural land-filled TSW which amounts to 120 million tonnes per year. This packaging waste comprises 3% of packaging from the household waste stream and 3% of packaging from commercial/industrial waste streams (INCPEN). 17 Packaging characteristics valued in multiple retail logistics and distribution include: Meets the retailer’s guidelines for acceptable transit packaging Minimise overall distribution cost Facilitates logistics service requirements to be met Returnable packaging systems Shelf life extension Pallet type, size and security; pack stability, handling, opening features, bar code scan, ease of read, minimum pack damage, hygiene etc.

For some fast-moving commodity type products, such as pasteurised milk, the cost of distribution and retail merchandising is usually a sizeable proportion of total product cost representing up to 50 per cent or more of the sales price. The cost of packaging materials and containers also adds slightly to the cost but design of the optimal packaging system can significantly reduce cost in the retail distribution chain.
