Shipping anything, from a book to a server, can be a daunting task for anyone or any business. That is why shipping is such a gigantic international industry! What some people may not know is that there are many sides to transportation. There is the actual shipment of the package, which of course is the whole point. However, there is a prominent yet unappreciated component of the transportation industry, and that is the packaging industry. The international packaging industry makes approximately $500 billion every year and employs up to 5 million people. What they focus on is appropriately and specifically packaging a wide variety of products, making sure each product is secure, clean, and efficiently-packaged.
