Strengthen the Comprehensive Service Ability of Printing Enterprises

Enterprises in the packaging and printing industry in China have long focused on the traditional business model of “production-transportation” of single products, and their comprehensive service capabilities have been weak. The integration of packaging is the trend of the global packaging industry in the future, and as the global manufacturing industry continues to shift to China, it also raises higher and higher requirements for packaging integration and comprehensive service capabilities of the packaging industry in China. For companies that do not yet have packaging integration and comprehensive service capabilities, they will face greater pressure for transformation. At present, existing companies have realized the expansion of business models and can provide customers with a variety of product "design-production-logistics" packaging integrated services.

During the "12th Five-Year Plan" period, with the rapid development of China's food industry, pharmaceuticals, electronic information, e-commerce, logistics and other industries, China's packaging and printing industry has developed rapidly.

In addition, due to the relatively small scale of investment in the packaging and printing industry, the strong ability to absorb labor force, and the low degree of damage to the environment, it is favored by many local governments. Policy-based concessions and support have promoted the development of the industry. Enterprises in the printing industry can be transformed into packaging and printing.
