The beauty of our packaging surveys is that one change can lead to several gains, which proved to be the case in this situation too.
Firstly, we achieved their objective of replacing their film wrap with biodegradable packaging products, reducing their environmental impact through the implementation of the BioZ film which oxo-biodegrades naturally in a 1-2-year timeframe, leaving no harmful micro-bead residue.
With the increased load retention offered by the new product, the client has also seen a reduction in damages, which in turn has saved them on the costs associated with returning and replacing items. By replacing their film, they’ve also increased productivity thanks to a significant decrease in breaking and snapping during the wrapping process which used to lead to operational downtime.
Finally, our packaging audit has also led to a huge reduction of pallet wrap being used. Plastic packaging waste reduced by 48.4%, which equals over 14 tonnes less polythene being sent to landfill sites every year – fantastic results all-round!
