It only takes $10 of stretch film to safely ship a typical truckload of pallets. Yet 1/2 percent* of total shipments are damaged on the way to their destinations, generating billions of dollars of losses a year.
So what's the bigger payoff? Saving a few percent on $10 of film or reducing the shipping damage from ineffective stretch wrapping by half of $250 (or 1/2 percent of your truckload's value)?
Talk about a no-brainer.
