B. Product Fragility

Just as in many companies it is impossible to have information on the distribution environment; the situation is the same for knowledge of product fragility. The situation is then in reality as you can see in the model from before:

Ekstra emballage

This simple diagram gives you the reality in the demand from EN13428. Today the majority of all packaging designers in Europe design packaging systems without knowledge about either data about distribution risks or measured product fragility.

This majority of packaging designers is now forced to change procedures.
