ITASCA, IL (MARCH 24, 2017) – A new Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) published by IFCO, a provider of reusable plastic containers (RPCs), attempts to discredit the corrugated packaging industry for having the highest recovery rate of any packaging system in America.
AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, is a growing membership association. In February, the association welcomed the following new members:
The Fibre Box Association (FBA) and AICC – The Independent Packaging Association will recognize 436 corrugated industry plants for safety achievements in 2016. This is a seven percent increase in the number of plants being recognized from the previous year, with the highest number of plant participants since 2002.
Chet Rutledge, former Director of Packaging Solutions, Private Brands for Walmart has joined Vanguard Packaging as the Director of Marketing for Retail Ready Packaging announced Mark Mathes, CEO.
Trade press reports coming off last week’s release of February’s box and inventory numbers indicate that industry fundamentals are strong enough to make the $50/ton linerboard increase a “slam dunk.”
