Master thesis/Internship eCommerce (m/f)

ALPLA Werke Alwin Lehner GmbH & Co KG / Hard / Austria / Technology Development

Your responsibilities

  • The FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) market is moving further into alternative distribution channels, like online distribution models. This shift changes the requirements and specifications for packaging to withstand the individual distribution paths.
  • ALPLA, as one of the biggest rigid plastic packaging manufacturing companies in the world, is directly impacted by this trend and thoroughly investigates how to adopt and improve packaging to enable eCommerce readiness.
  • One current global testing standard for eCommerce is the ISTA test norm in their different variations. These norms are used to test and certify individual packages to be ready for shipment.
  • ALPLA has installed its own test laboratory with latest equipment to test packages according to ISTA packaging requirements. However, ALPLA wants to deep dive into the testing norms and learn how to improve our packages while reducing test effort.
  • Therefore we search for an interested student (m/f) for either writing his/her master thesis on the topic or for an internship on a 6 month basis.
