Pallet wrap is a product that most businesses in New Zealand will be dealing with in some capacity.
It plays a key role in ensuring that your products are safe throughout the whole transit process.
However, this is often an area that is overlooked but one that is crucial to how you run your business on a day-to-day basis. If left, this is a space that could cost your business financially and create risk around your health and safety.
Annually, Snell performs hundreds of pallet wrapping audits in NZ. We regularly encounter companies completely unaware of how their stretch wrapping operation is performing. Poor performance typically drives up costs, affecting load safety, productivity, and your environmental impact through the amount of plastic film consumed and dispatched to your clients.
If you are not using a combination of; the correct pallet wrap, wrap cycle settings and the optimum stretch for the machine & film, there will be inefficiencies in your operation. Snell performed a review at a large food producer which revealed the poor performance of their stretch wrapping equipment. This resulted in a 59% overspend on film, 38% more plastic consumed and dispatched than necessary, while roll changes occurred 25% more times than they needed to.
Having certainty that your pallets are wrapped safely and in the most efficient way possible is key to every operation. Knowing that this is happening on a consistent basis will leave you able to focus on your resources on other projects.
Snell have access to advanced technology that help us gauge our customers needs when wrapping pallets. We’ve added to this by now acquiring the first ACE 650 containment force tool. This leading-edge equipment has automated testing and measurement features making it the easiest and most accurate hand-tool on the market.
