During the transportation process, there will be damage such as vibration, extrusion, collision, sun exposure, rain, etc., and they will encounter insects during the storage process. , rat bites, corrosion, etc. Even in the hands of the user, there are still storage requirements from the beginning of use to the end of use. Therefore, there must be a good packaging box to protect the medicine from damage.

Pharmaceutical products have different forms such as gaseous, solid, and liquid, and their physical and chemical properties are also different. Some are poisonous, some are corrosive, and some are volatile, flammable, and explosive; , Most of the time it is stored in the warehouse (from the warehouse of the pharmaceutical factory to the warehouse of the wholesale, retail enterprise or medical unit), which requires frequent transportation, loading and unloading, and these are only easy to transport, carry and store with proper packaging. The vast majority of pharmaceutical products need to be protected from moisture, light, and heat during storage, and some special drugs need to be protected from shock and explosion during transportation. Drugs and dangerous goods in special medicines need special packaging. Good packaging can keep the quality of pharmaceutical products unchanged during the entire circulation process, thereby ensuring the realization of their use value.

After the product is packaged, it is often not the product itself but the packaging of the product that first enters the consumer's sight. Unique, refined and beautiful packaging boxes can enhance the beauty of the product, stimulate consumers' desire to buy, and play the role of a silent salesman.
