Transport packaging serves to facilitate the transportation of goods between individual distributors, and to prevent damage from occurring during transit. Transport packaging remains at retail shops and is not intended to be handed over along with goods to final consumers.
Special return and recovery requirements apply for transport packaging. Registration and system participation requirements do not apply in this regard. If an article of packaging that is meant to make the transportation of goods easier accumulates with a final consumer, then it is considered to be shipment packaging. This packaging requires the distributor to undertake registration and system participation if the packaging typically accumulates as waste with private final consumers.
