A Bulk Packaging Kit is a useful feature when a package is made up of a number of components. For example, a syringe package may be composed of the syringe barrel, plunger, and protective cover. Each time we pack an item into a package ‘syringe’, or otherwise use the package ‘syringe’, the associated packaging components are also linked to the package.
