Wrapping Safe-to-Ship Loads
Stretch wrapping has become the standard way to unitize products for shipment. But, just because the load is wrapped and it's shiny, doesn't mean it's ready for the back of a truck. Without proper stretch wrapping, loads can fail during shipment, causing damage to the product and
damage to the brand.
It is estimated that ineffective stretch wrapping is responsible for $60 billion of waste each year, just in consumer product goods. Now, more
than ever, improving stretch wrapping processes, setting a standard and maintaining it is important in any shipping operation.
Three signs of a safe-to-ship load:
- There is enough containment force everywhere on the load.
- The load is locked to the pallet.
- There are no long or dragging film tails.
