"More than ever, packagers are seeking new cost-savings and productivity opportunities, and we are excited to partner with Adalis and leverage its leadership in packaging and sustainability to deliver this insightful and educational seminar," said Jim Peters, director of education and certification, IoPP.

Developed by IoPP in conjunction with Adalis Corp., the seminar was developed for packagers who find themselves with greater transport packaging responsibilities, cost reduction objectives and sustainability improvement initiatives. Geared to those with experience who want a fresh perspective on how to identify cost savings opportunities, the seminar features the impacts that packaging has on logistics systems.
