Effects of Social Media and Packaging on e-Commerce Shippers
08/15/18

Wednesday, August 15th 1:30-2:00pm EST

Jack Mahoney
Brand Manager

Today, many companies build their brand primarily through digital interactions with customers and the ensuing package deliveries from online purchases. Brand value is increasingly important due to competitive pressure from the largest retailers, disruptoes, and store brands. As a result, businesses are looking to own adn optimize their brand experience to drive future sales. A key component of brand experience is the protective packaging used to reduce damages and capitalize on the unboxing experience. This session will dive into the quantifiable value provided by delivering a positive customer experience and its impact on future sales.

Takeaway:
  • e-Commerce trends
  • e-Commerce segment priorities in regards to protective packaging
  • Customer experience and impact on future orders
  • Groundbreaking research quantifies emotional response to damage

The Omni-Channel Packaging Strategies Conference
10/03/18 - 10/04/18

 
Why The Omni-Channel Packaging Strategies Conference? Fundamental changes are underway in the way products are marketed, packaged, and distributed.  Professionals throughout the value chain are challenged when tasked with developing solutions to meet the demands of Omni-channel distribution.  New packaging solutions must be found or created that are both economically and environmentally sustainable. Through a balance of valuable presentations from leading experts and corporations, The Omni-Channel Packaging Strategies Conference offers a solutions driven discussion around the complexity channel-proliferation introduces for stakeholders across the board.

Stability Palletised Corrugated Packaging in Modern Supply Chains Webinar
10/18/18

Thursday, October 18th 1:30-2:00pm EST

Gérard van den Boogaard
Expertise Manager Supply Chain
Smurfit Kappa Development Centre


 
The main challenges of modern supply chains are managing the volatility, adapting to the omni-channel consumer and becoming more sustainable. In any supply chain scenario palletized packaging plays a role, however, the boundary conditions are changing rapidly.  Mixed loads, stacked pallets, repacking, etc. are no longer the exception to enable producers managing the ever-increasing supply chain complexity.
 
The higher requirements on pallet handling puts more and more pressure on the stability of palletised corrugated packaging. Palletised corrugated packages should be stable in any supply chain to avoid logistic problems, health and safety hazards and product damage.
 
The traditional way to find out if the is a trial (and error) shipment or a test. With today’s potential risks and time pressure this is not sufficient anymore. Combining the results of scientific insights, intensive testing and practical experience enabled us to develop a predictive tool to assess the stability of a palletised load. The tool helps to increase the speed and risk assess the palletized load, a critical step in today's volatile supply chain.

Single parcel delivery (FedEx, UPS, etc.) has long been a popular method for distributing goods globally. The emergence of e-Commerce has only served to amplify its importance and highlight the need for properly testing packaged-products prior to shipment. The Performance Testing For Single Parcel Delivery Systems training webinar will explore the importance of pre-shipment testing and walk attendees through conducting the ISTA 3A test procedure step-by-step. Other topics that will be covered include parcel carrier networks, the history behind ISTA 3A, the elements it includes, and what these elements simulate. Learn how to bring the single parcel delivery system into a controlled lab environment by signing up today! Training will be conducted by Eric Hiser, ISTA's Vice President - Technical.

Developing Thermal Data Analysis Standards: Algorithms for Developing Temperature Test Profiles from Ambient Lane Data Webinar
11/14/18

Wednesday, November 14th 1:30-2:00pm EST

Bernard McGarvey, Ph.D. 
Retired
Engineering Fellow at Eli Lilly and Company


Paul Harber
Principal
Modality Solutions LLC
 

Development of thermal testing profiles using data collected from various lanes is a common practice in the pharmaceutical industry. These thermal profiles are used in chamber testing of shipping containers. Currently the available standards emphasize the use of a standard test profile. This presentation argues that we now need to begin to identify standard algorithms for developing test profiles as well. This will allow shippers to develop test profiles form their own sourced data. In particular, this presentation describes the QT(min/max) method for developing thermal profiles and demonstrates how it is superior to several existing methods that are currently in use.
 
This method is a critical element in an overall risk analysis for evaluating the suitability of pre-qualified passive container solutions. Additionally, this method can be utilized to compare thermal profiles irrespective of the method used to create them. The integration of this method with thermal modeling simulations of passive container solutions is also considered.

Bernard McGarvey Biography: Education: B.E. and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering, University College Dublin, Ireland. Activities: Focus over the last 15 years has been on the application of first principles thinking to solving problems in the pharmaceutical industry. Most recently he has applied this to cold chain transportation to improve the speed and quality of the decision making required to optimize cold chain distribution. Professional Achievements: Retired as an Engineering Fellow at Eli Lilly and Company.

Developing Climatic OQ Thermal Challenge Profiles Webinar
01/16/19

Wednesday, January 16th 1:30-2:00pm EST

Bryan Cardis
Consultant Cold Chain and Packaging Engineer
Eli Lilly and Company


Jeffrey Chida 

Consultant Engineer
Eli Lilly and Company
 

There are times when products will be distributed in areas, geographic zones that might not have actual collected shipping lane ambient temperature data in order to generate thermal OQ profiles in order to qualify temperature controlled shipping containers.   Lilly has developed a process to utilize climatic data to support these undefined regions in order to develop a thermal OQ profile in the absence of actual lane data to support commercialization of the product supply chain.

Jeffrey Chida Biography: Education: BS Packaging (Michigan State University…Go Green!) Work History: 19 years at Eli Lilly and Company as packaging engineer.
