Corrugated Week: A big week for the packaging and shipping industry.

The packaging industry leaders gathered Sept. 24-27 in Indianapolis to get caught up on everything that has changed in the four years since the last Corrugated Week convened.

Managed by industry associations TAPPI and AICC, Corrugated Week brought together the top packaging and shipping experts to assess the state of the industry.

So what’s changed in the last four years? Amazon’s meteoric growth and the continued rise of e-commerce means speed was among the biggest topics of the week. Among the Corrugated Week learning topics were digital printing and material handling automation, two of the most significant changes in the industry since the industry last got together in Long Beach, Calif. in 2014. Safety, human resources and a new Emerging Leaders/Young Professionals track were among the other key topics for the week at the Indiana Convention Center.

Lachenmeier/Muller LCS Stretch Wrapping had its industry-leading product solutions on display at Booth 406. Among the Lachenmeier products on display were the MultiFleXL, designed to take on some of the biggest stretch wrapping products with both speed and a reduced footprint.

The Multi FleXL machine tackled loads from as small as 20 X 20 inches to as large and 125 inches in lengths by 66 inches in width, with a maximum height to 120 inches. Depending on the height and size of the load, the MultiFleXL can securely wrap up to 150 loads per hour.

Combined with Lachenmeier’s exclusive Xeros condensation control film, attendees at Corrugated Week learned about pallets of cardboard and other large bundles wrapped secure from moisture and weather (including sunshine) but also secured to the pallet.

In the next recap of Corrugated Week, we’ll take an in-depth look at the Muller's Octopus and how it will provide secure solutions for the corrugated industry.
