Why You Should Use GeoPackage instead of shapefile?
Compared to shapefiles, the column headers can be full names and right by providing the correct context for each column. You will see a faster run and algorithm outputs on geopackages compared to shapefiles (You can try this on QGIS).

What is The GeoPackage standard?
The GeoPackage is a recently adopted OGC standard (OGC 12-128r10).

What is the difference between Geodatabase and GeoPackage?
Geometry storage in a GeoPackage is not compressed like a geodatabase, so they can get big. Do your geoprocessing before creating your GeoPackage, then copy your data into it. Think of GeoPackage as a sharing format.
