This report provides an overview of the supply chain management theme in packaging. It identifies the key trends impacting the growth of the theme over the next 12 to 24 months in the packaging context, classified into four categories: technology trends, macroeconomic trends, consumer trends, and regulatory trends.

The role of improving supply chain management in most organizations is to improve efficiencies and cost-effectiveness. Due to the broad nature of supply chain management, the planning landscape can often be quite fragmented with several different inputs and variables. Therefore, new ways of managing supply chains, often utilizing technology can be of great benefit to packaging companies.


  • Automating systems and using artificial intelligence (AI) in supply chain processes can mean that there is less time spent on server administrations and more time spent on planning, which helps keep the focus on core and strategic business functions and also reduce the margin for errors.
  • In a global context of changing consumer behaviors and values, effective supply chain management can also aid distribution and the flow of information.
  • Supply chains in packaging and FMCG need to adapt to manage things like waste reduction, recyclability, and reusability to improve their sustainable credentials.
