The Foundations of Packaging is a self-paced, online course that provides an essential introduction to the art, science and business of packaging.
Packaging is a complex process that must be seen as part of a greater system, where each activity has an impact on the final package. Factors such as packaging material production, selection and procurement; package design, engineering and manufacturing; package branding, printing and labeling; packaging laws and regulations and packaging distribution all play a critical role in the efficiency of the global supply chain for consumer and industrial goods. These packaging functions impact company departments such as marketing, sales, procurement, legal, distribution, quality control, manufacturing and warehousing. After taking this course, students will possess the thought process required of a successful stakeholder in the packaging industry.
The paper segment of the global containers and packaging market is the most lucrative, boasting a 40% market share of revenue.
From Fortune 500 brands to emerging startups, paperboard is a top-used packaging substrate. It’s no wonder because paperboard has amazing graphics and printing capabilities, a high degree of sustainability, and enhanced usability. As a packaging designer, marketer, converter, or supply chain manager it is beneficial to understand the ins and outs of paperboard in order to produce the best carton possible. This eLearning course will focus on helping you understand the foundations of paperboard packaging from sourcing raw materials to the finished good. This understanding will serve as an important context for your future advancement, on your own and in your company.
Corrugated board is a highly customizable substrate and the knowledge to use it well can be greatly advantageous for your company in terms of saving waste and money.

We’ve made an informative course with easy to digest information that will get you up to speed on corrugated containers. In this course, you will learn both the art and science of corrugated. From learning how corrugated fiberboard is manufactured, to how corrugated containers are designed and produced on packaging machinery, you will get a 360° view of the corrugated industry.
