MSc study food transport packaging for home-delivery

30 June 2015

Secondary packaging presently used to package food goods in e-commerce supply chains is either taken from existing supply chains, or sub-optimally developed in a non-holistic manner. Due to the increased use of the internet in Europe to perform online food purchases, secondary packaging must be adapted to meet new needs. Quality assurance of mixed food loads and improving logistic efficiency are essential to these virtual means of grocery shopping. A secondary packaging solution for a Dutch e-grocer was devised based on identified food product and logistic requirements. After completing his MSc-thesis, Rémi Vandichel has joined NVC as junior manager Knowledge Development and Projects.
