Licensing of sales packaging

No contract necessary - receive your confirmation of quantities within 3 minutes

Sales packaging is packaging that is typically offered filled with goods to the end consumer or comparable sources of waste generation. Service packaging and shipping packaging are also sales packaging.

Handling of transport packaging

Handle small quantities of transport packaging without much effort

Transport packaging typically does NOT accrue to the end consumer but remains in the trade. This distinguishes it from shipping packaging, which typically accumulates at private end consumers. Transport packaging is often used to bundle several sales units into one transport unit.
