Abstract

This paper focuses on the packaging sector in the Greek logistics market. It seeks to evaluate in the broader sense the packaging operations and the potential problems such as barriers that a number of local laws, based on the European Packaging Directive 94/62/EC, might be generated in the individual markets. More specifically, the Greek market is a special field, where the effects caused by a number of measures formulated by the European Union, generate discrepancies compared to other member states, partly due to the geographical position of Greece and the distance from the central European market. This paper also includes an investigation of a specific paper packaging supply chain, where paper packaging acts as a significant factor for the individual companies that participate within it.
