Repackage

The activities associated with packaging and labeling the product for the purpose of returning the product to inventory or the asset owner/user/lessee. This may include preparing the packaging, inserting the product in its packaging, sealing the packaging, applying product labels to the packaging and where necessary insert the packaged product in group packaging.

The M4 process may add multiple packagings:

  • Primary packaging is the material that envelops the product and holds it. This usually is the smallest unit of use. Primary packaging is in direct contact with the contents and may have commercial imprints to appeal to the customer. This type of packaging is typically added in the M4 process
  • Secondary packaging is the material that groups primary packages together. This does not apply to all products that require packaging, if secondary packaging is applied, then this usually is the smallest unit of sale. This type of packaging can be added in the M4 or in the D process.
  • Tertiary packaging is used for handling, storage and transportation. This includes palletizing, shrink-wrapping, over-boxing and labeling. This type of packaging can be added in the M4 process or in the D process.
