Just published in January a new book Distribution Packaging Technology offers practical advice in the form of case history applications by leading packaging experts around the world.
In 358 pages editor Robert M. Fiedler CPP has compiled 34 specific reports on a wide range of distribution topics from studying shock and vibration in boxcars to United Nations performance standards for hazardous materials. Some are general: defining the distribution environment. Others are more specific: the performance standard HM 181.
Distribution Packaging Technology sells for $90 and is available only from the IoPP Packaging Bookstore (phone 800/432-4085).
