Packaging Scorecard - A Packaging Performance Evaluation Method

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


To support a more holistic approach to the contribution of packaging to
efficiency and value creation in the product supply chain, a systematic evaluation method Packaging
Scorecard - has been developed and tested in two case studies. The
Packaging Scorecard is based on
research of functional criteria of
packaging and the theories of Balanced Scorecard, a general management
approach to evaluating organisational performance using different
perspectives. The results of the case studies indicate that the method can be very useful to get a systematic overview of packaging performance throughout the product supply chain.
