There are very many ways to secure enough for transportation, but one that stands from all of them is the pallet wrap. The pallet wrap, also known as Stretch wrap or stretch film, is a type of plastic film that can be stretched around a pallet. The cover can be used for various applications, but one that is common is its use for packaging of products before they are shipped or transported over a long distance. One requires reliable machines for pallet wrapping to make the process seamless, but for the operator on a budget, hands could be used for small-scale operations. The wrappers come in all sizes and colors, but one thing that remains consistent is their many advantages.
Advantages of pallet wrapping
By wrapping products using pallet wraps, they get protected from environmental factors such as dirt and moisture. This ensures that when the product is delivered to the end user, it still retains the good aesthetics. Some products are also very sensitive to UV rays, making these wraps handy because they also prevent excessive exposure to UV rays. Last but not least, they can be also used to protect products from water damage especially for products that are stored outside, and are prone to rain.
By using this wrap to wrap around your products it makes is harder for pilferage to occur given then the cover is airtight and doesn’t allow leakage of liquid products is professionally used. Their transparent nature also allows for easy spotting, making it easy for leakages to be spotted before they get out of hand.
Grouping products together
They can also be used to unitize many common products together, making it easy to account for them throughout there transportation. This also provides a neat way to package products on top of their primary packaging, also acting as an extra layer of protection.
This is very common especially when transporting a large number of products. By wrapping them together, pilferage can be prevented by making it easy to notice breaches on the wrapping. It will ultimately discourage pilfers from tampering with the goods, hence providing unprecedented security.
Shipping and handling efficiencies
By stacking products together, it makes it easy for people to handle lots of products since they can wrap them into one after stacking then together. This increases the stack height, making it occupy a small surface area, and increase the storage efficiency.
