J.P. Mann Modulaire verpakking; basis voor rationele distributie
Literature survey, Report TT.0901, Transport Engineering and Logistics.

In order to rationalize distribution a system of modular sizes has been introduced. The basis of this is the module 400x600 mm. This helps to improve the flow in the transport chain. To achieve efficiënt distribution the package however has to meet more demands. An example of these is readiness-for-display, which is quite important for the retail trade.
