Packaging Master Data Exchange

Accurate and timely Packaging Master Data (PMD) are a prerequisite to support efficient packaging management processes. However, a diversity of portal or cloud based solutions are used to communicate those data that do not address full automation for the exchange of PMD.

An initiative to define a standard structured form of PMD to support electronic methods of communication, avoiding the proliferation of different solutions therefore reducing IT development costs for individual companies.


  • automatic integration of packaging master data in ERP/Packaging Management Systems
  • standard method of exchanging packaging master data between customers and suppliers


  • standardised model for packaging master data
  • standardised model for part packaging data (Packaging Data Sheet)
  • digital messaging guidelines for packaging data
  • best practice recommendation on the sharing of packaging data
