CPULD graduate students, Sean Hobbs and Yash Mansharamani, both gave presentations about their ongoing research projects at the National Wooden Pallet and Container Association (NWPCA) Annual Leadership Conference in Fort Worth, TX earlier this year. The NWPCA holds multiple events a year with the goal of facilitating connections between research institutions and the packaging/pallet industry. In conjunction with the NWPCA, The Pallet Foundation sponsors research projects like those of both CPULD graduate student presenters.
