    1. The Effect of Active Packaging on Minimizing Food Losses: Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of Essential Oil Component-enabled Packaging for Fresh Beef (pages 761–774)

      The objective of this study is to assess the overall eco-profile of the food packaging system considering the positive effect of minimizing food losses by using active packaging based on a case study on beef using essential oil component as active agent. A life cycle assessment has been carried out, and it was shown that in the case of the best-performance active packaging used, it was possible to achieve the breakeven point across all the impact categories concerned, which is a remarkable environmental merit for promoting the use of active packaging.

      (a) Control: air-packaged sample, (b) samples packaged with oxygen absorber (OA), (c) samples packaged with OA + EE (1% v/v) and (d) samples packaged with OA + EE (3% v/v).

      1. A novel method is found for Chinese steamed bread preservation.
      2. Microbial shelf-life of Chinese steamed bread can be extended for 11 days.
      3. Active packaging can effectively maintain the quality of Chinese steamed bread.
    3. Determination of Selected Perfluorinated Acids (PFCAs) and Perfluorinated Sulfonates (PFASs) in Food Contact Materials Using LC-MS/MS (pages 789–799)

      The food contact materials from commercially available packaging products contain selected perfluorinated compounds. The LC-MS/MS system showed potential for the measurement of selected perfluorinated acids and perfluorinated sulfonates in food contact materials.

    4. Comparison of Disposable Dunnage and Reusable Cradles in Container Shipping of Steel Rolled Coils: A Case Study in South Korea (pages 801–809)

      This research is to show that, compared with dunnage, coil cradles can reduce the amount of time required, the number of workers needed and the related work expenses.

    5. Effect of Surface Free Energy of Film Laminated Steel Sheets on Content Release Properties (pages 811–821)

      Yoichiro Yamanaka, Junichi Kitagawa and Hiroki Nakamaru

      Article first published online: 4 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/pts.2144

      Content release properties are affected significantly by surface free energy of materials, and materials with surface free energy of less than 23 mN/m or greater than 44 mN/m show good properties. The content release properties of processed meat can be expressed as the work of adhesion in water between materials and proteins. Materials with lower work of adhesion in water show better release properties.

    1. Measurement and Analysis of Vibration Levels in Two and Three Wheel Delivery Vehicles in Southeast Asia (pages 836–850)

      This study measured the vibration levels in two and three-wheel vehicles used for delivery of packages in the ‘last leg’ of the supply chain in Thailand and Indonesia. The composite power density spectra are ‘recommended’ by the authors based on measured data to simulate the vertical vibration conditions in small vehicles for ‘last leg’ distribution using lab-simulated vibration tests.
