What is Packaging Data Management?

Packaging Data Management centres on the strategic collection, analysis, and utilisation of data throughout the packaging lifecycle to drive efficiency, innovation, and compliance. This approach focuses on leveraging data from design and materials selection through manufacturing, distribution, usage, and disposal to optimise packaging solutions.

By implementing advanced data management systems, companies can create a complete, accurate and accessible centralised repository of packaging information. This helps management make informed decisions that enhance packaging control and minimise environmental impact.

At its core, Packaging Data Management involves gathering, tracking and analysing detailed information about packaging materials, sizes, weights, and recyclability, as well as the environmental footprint of packaging processes.

This data-driven strategy allows businesses to identify trends, inefficiencies, and opportunities for improvement in their packaging strategies. It helps meet ESG reporting requirements and supports the development of smarter packaging that meets both market demands and sustainability goals.
