Supply chain flashcard on Copacking. Copacking is the process of packing products together to create a shelf-ready bundle for the retailer to sell. If we do copacking of a conditioner with a shampoo, then we eventually get rid of it! Outsourcing packaging to an external company, known as the copacker or contract packager. Let's focus on manufacturing and outsource the packaging entirely! Copacking brings benefits but also creates analytical difficulties in inventory replenishment at the store and at the warehouse levels.
