A MIX

The Corrugated Packaging Alliance has been conducting packaging studies on a commodity-by-commodity basis as part of its strategy following a study commissioned by the alliance in mid-2003.

That study, conducted by Willard Bishop Consulting Ltd., Barrington, Ill., found that, while retailers are predicting an increase in the use of corrugated packaging, they are not planning to abandon RPCs altogether.

Instead, the study found that retailers will use a mix of corrugated and plastic to ship their products, depending on which container best suits the commodity.
