3 Tales of Packaging Terror
When dimly lit warehouses are almost devoid of life and the industrial lighting starts to flicker. Whenever you hear a whisper coming from empty shelving, or the stress of filling all the holiday orders starts to build….
That is when you know that Halloween is just around the corner. There is never a better time to hear the stories that keep the packaging industry up at night.
Tonight, we present to you three tales of packaging terror for your enjoyment.

The Tale of the Mostly Empty Box
