Packaging is everywhere you look. In fact, you may just have a few sitting next to you right now.
It’s how we keep products safe, communicate intent and make sure both businesses and customers are always on the same page. When your brand fails to keep up with changing trends? Your packaging may be reduced to little more than an expensive shell that works against you, rather than for you.

Between the years of 2016 and 2026, many experts believe that employment rates in the field of HVAC will rise. HVAC, simply put, stands for heating and cooling and energy as well. One of the number one reasons that this is going to grow is because there are more homes and more people in need of help from experts. So this world of construction is potentially going to be booming in the next decade!
In 2016, the total consumption of energy in the United States was approximately 97.4 quadrillion, or 1,000 trillion, BTUs.
Residential humidity levels should be kept between 30% and 55% indoor humidity to maintain optimum air quality. All of these minor facts point to how valuable
The transportation and shipping industry is vital to providing the United States with a variety of commodities. Electronics, for example, have the highest dollar amount, and bring in an annual revenue of $1,673 billion. When it comes to the commodities with the highest weight, however, these are asphalt, Coca Cola, and natural gas. Approximately 2,647 million tons of these commodities are shipped throughout the United States on an annual basis. Hazardous cargo is also transported throughout the country on a regular basis.
Transporting Hazardous Cargo
According to the Department of Transportation, there are nine classes of hazardous cargo. Flammable liquids are one of the most regularly transported hazardous materials. A significant percentage of flammable liquid cargo usually consists of gasoline, for example.
On a daily basis, approximately 94% of hazardous cargo is transported by trucks. When considering that about 11 billion tons of freight is transported via truc

It can be difficult for anyone to contemplate a career change, but as we age it becomes ever more difficult to consider starting life anew. A midlife career change can be very rewarding, but it can also be very difficult. Finding good career change advice or career change coaching can make all the difference, especially in a midlife career change.
- Why do people contemplate a change later in life? The average person will change jobs between 10 and 15 times during the course of a life. Between 2015 and 2016 alone, almost 4% of the entire United States workforce transferred from one occupation to another completely different one. Many of these changes are spurred on by a desire to do something more meaningful or rewarding. Another reason for a midlife career change may be the desire to find something more challenging. Some simply want to find something that pays better or is a better fit for the personal changes they have gone through.
It was not that long ago that Clemson University decided to try a test. They were curious about how much difference the packaging of a product made to those who saw it. They chose some items that were otherwise identical and packed half of them in made in USA clamshells and the other half in a traditional paper box. The colors and stylings on the outside of the packages were as identical as possible considering the differences between cardboard and clamshell packaging. The point of the study was to see how packaging affects the bottom line of any business throughconsumer behavior.
What Do We Know Already?
Studies have shown that packaging is important to consumers. A study done by West Rock Consumer Insights in 2016 found that 26% of people said product packaging is extremely important to their satisfaction with the product. That same study found that only 14% of buyers believed that brands were actively trying to satisfy the needs of their consumers by improving packaging.
When it comes to storage space, nothing can really hold a candle to leasing a warehouse. Yet for a while businesses didn’t seem very interested in investing in them. That’s no longer the case with the rise of e-commerce and online shopping. That means that if you’re in the warehousing and distribution industries, this is a busy time on both the local and global levels.
The warehouse industry has been growing exponentially with warehouse space increasing by more than 86% since the early 2000s. Currently, an estimated 170,000 Americans currently work in the storage and warehouse leasing industry. This is, of course, partly influenced by the rise of technology and e-commerce, which is only expected to grow more and more over the next several years. With more businesses needing more ways to get their products out to vario
Factories that manufacture food products require many kinds of machines, conveyor belts, and inspection services. Whether it is a factory to package fresh frozen vegetables or it is a factory that produces popular cereals or canned soup, there is as much machinery involved as there is food ingredients. And in an effort to keep everything running both efficiently and safely, it is important that companies make sure that they upgrade their equipment. From tumbling drums to vibratory screeners, there are many specific kinds of parts and machines that are essential parts of the food processing industry.
When most consumers go to the grocery store to purchase their favorite items, they likely are not thinking about the entire production process that is a part of all of the packages items that they buy. There is however, an entire science behind food production. From sorting ingredients to mixing ingredients to packaging in plastics, cardboards, and other materials, the food production p
From the scientific freezer or lab refrigerator to the right sort of microscope, there’s certain equipment every lab needs to have. Here’s a short list of six of the most important pieces of laboratory equipment.
A centrifuge is a piece of laboratory equipment that can separate gases or fluid based on their density, or remove suspended material from nearly any sort of medium. Centrifuges are critical pieces of equipment for medical science and laboratory testing. Centrifugal force is frequently used with cell cultures, DNA, and blood sample testing. The spinning of the centrifuge causes the denser substances within a medium to move, and these denser substances settle on the outside while lighter substances remain in the middle. Centrifuges come in many speeds and sizes, and the right choice for any laboratory will depend on precisely wh
