New milk jug cuts logistics costs
In an effort to trim costs the milk industry in the USA is introducing a more efficient milk jug. The basic difference, it is stackable without the use of plastic milk crates and its square so more can fit on a pallet. All good things. Of course some nitwits are having challenges pouring the milk. For them, stores like Sam's Club are offering demonstrations on how to use the new jug. How sad is this? Anyway, supply chain innovation is at work here. Hat's off to the team that designed it.
