Lindum were asked to investigate pallet instability and pallet wrap snapping issues as well as undertake a transit packaging audit
After a LIPS we ascertained more efficient pallet wrapping films would reduce packaging costs and also environmental impact. A perfect example of why we say; “it’s not how much a roll of wrap costs, but what you can wrap with it that matters”.
Westbury switched lines 1 and 2 to using Carestretch™ 517S film, and switched line 3 to using Carewrap™ film. To improve stability we recommended that the overlap on the wrap was increased from 50mm to 200mm increasing film usage. That increase was far outweighed by a more efficient film and fewer damaged pallets.
It may sound bizarre but our promise is to offer you less and less:
