Ever been in an earthquake? It’s amazing how much damage 30 seconds of vibration can do.
Your pallet loads must survive the vibration from “mini earthquakes” as they ship to your customers – only they last a lot longer than 30 seconds. Check out this video.
Better engineering, design, and building codes have dramatically reduced the risk of damage from earthquakes. Likewise, better stretch wrapping can reduce risk of damage to your pallets from mini earthquakes.
Today, billions of dollars worth of poorly stretch wrapped pallets are damaged during shipment. The waste is obscene: overflowing landfills, re-handling and reclamation costs, disappointed customers, unnecessary rework, and lower profits – just for starters.
Don’t be victimized by mini earthquakes. Minimize the risk of your loads being damaged from the effects of vibration on their way to your customers. It’s not that hard and the benefits are enormous.
