Transport packaging is used to protect and deliver goods. The participants of the various trade levels tend to pass these on — for example, manufacturers pass them on to the distributors.
They are designed to facilitate handling and transport and protect products from damage and weather influences. Typically, transport packaging is not intended to be passed on to the end consumer.
These consist of films, air cushions, cartons, pallets, or moulded components as well as belts. Filling materials are often included. The ultimate objective is the protection of your goods.
With the amendment to the Packaging Act in July 2021, new obligations for transport packaging came into force:
- Obligation to inform: Since 3rd July 2021, you must inform end consumers about the takeback options and their significance when the transport packaging accumulates.
- Obligation to provide proof: Since 1st January 2022, you must provide proof of compliance with the takeback and recycling requirements.
- Setting up a compliance scheme: You must also set up self-organisation measures for documentation and financial management.
