The holistic packaging license for transport packages

Der Grüne Punkt offers a comprehensive disposal service for well-nigh every form of package. With a packaging license from our dual system, you have opted for a strong partnership and for innovative solutions geared to the closed-cycle economy. The provisions of the German Packaging Ordinance applying to transport packages impose a series of duties on the companies involved. We can provide you with effective support in performing these duties.

Legally compliant handling of transport packages

The German Packaging Ordinance (abbreviated in German to VerpackV) defines as transport packages those packages that facilitate the transport of goods from producers to retailers, protect them from damage, or are used in logistical operations for all other safety reasons. In contrast to sales packages (which may possess similar utility), transport packages are encountered solely at commercial dealers. Anyone putting these packages into circulation is obligated to take them back as well, and to arrange for them to be re-used or subjected to material recycling, insofar as this is technically possible and commercially viable.
