Whitepaper about forming trays: Outsourcing vs. Doing it yourself?

An increasing amount of food manufacturers is using mechanically formed corrugated or solid board trays to pack and promote their products, like fruit, vegetables, meat and bakery products. Do you cooperate with a tray erecting station, where your trays are being glued, formed and stocked? There are certain advantages when you form boxes or trays yourself.
