Damage statistics is an efficient tool both evaluating the quality in your distribution chain and also in enabling demonstration of optimal use of packaging to authorities.
A damage statistics is an ongoing file including all reported damages. Such a file can include:
- Product data
- Nature (code)
- Evaluation of reason
- Route to destination
- Date of production and shipment
- Other relevant data
Data can be filed in paper or on a computer. The most important part is analysing these data in order to conclude and implement improvements in your system. Such improvements can be upgrading of distribution, but the results can also upgrading of either product or packaging system.
