    Based on data from FreightWatch International, 13% of cargo thefts involved pharmaceuticals during the first quarter of this year. While the number of thefts has declined, the average loss has not, increasing from $154,000 from last year, same period, to $235,000 this year. Counterfeit drugs are also a growing concern. According to the US Federal Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy, 1% to 2% of drugs are counterfeit in the US. With more than four billion prescriptions filled in the US each year, worth an estimated $310bn, 1% equals about four million packages that may be counterfeit.

    Packaging materials are used every day in almost every company that manufactures and sells products. Packaging is used to move raw material to a manufacturer, bulk finished material to a distributor and then the final product to the consumer. Packaging material is there to perform a number of tasks; protect the material from damage, from the environmental conditions, to make transportation easier and to make the item attractive to the consumer. However, as the public’s perception about the environment changes, companies are looking at how they can adopt greener packaging alternatives.

Airports would become congested, other flights would be delayed as passengers miss connections, baggage delayed, priority cargo would not be shipped on time, correct scheduling of support equipment would be difficult, and airlines might not be able to operate their aircraft profitably.
