Fibre Box Association

The Fibre Box Association (FBA) is a nonprofit trade association that represents North American corrugated packaging manufacturers, and strives to grow, protect and enhance the overall wellbeing of the industry by providing member-valued programs and services.

In June 2018, FBA commissioned Seidman to update its Full Disclosure Model.  This is a tool used by FBA members to estimate the full lifecycle costs of using corrugated cardboard containers in comparison to reusable plastic containers.

As part of this study, Seidman:

  • Mapped the supply chains for both cardboard and plastic containers from grower to retailer and container end-of-life
  • Sourced new base data for the Full Disclosure Model
  • Updated the Full Disclosure Model using FileMaker Advanced Pro 17 software.
