The History of Packaging

Posted by Jerad Dowler on Thu, Mar 05, 2015

Packaging film is generally taken for granted, but it has a much richer past than you might think. Imagine what it would be like to send a pallet of boxed items without stretch film to cover it. While it isn’t a nightmare, it certainly presents a lot of different problems that you don’t have to worry about today.
