Secondary packaging designates the packaging used for grouping various pre-packed products together. The second layer of packaging is not in direct contact with the product and its use and applications are distinctly different than primary packaging, however, sometimes the purpose of both the packaging type may converge. Secondary packaging is generally used for two main purposes, namely branding and display and logistics. Some of the common examples of secondary packaging include plastic crates, cardboard boxes, and cardboard cartons amongst others.
Secondary packaging performs the role of protecting not only the product but also the primary packaging and hence is an important aspect of packaging. Secondary packaging entails activities such as safe transportation of primary packed products and retaining the primary packaging intact. Packaging encompasses a broad range of activities. Various materials are used for different levels of packaging.
