After our full survey at Westbury, we found that switching to more efficient pallet wrapping stretch films would not only reduce their packaging costs, but their environmental impact too.
We identified a dual approach to tackle the issues across their packaging processes, replacing their old, insufficient films with Carestretch™ 517S on lines one and two, and Carewrap™ film on line three. These solutions have increased the stability of their pallets while reducing the weight of wrap used per pallet from 338g to 158g on each line – a big reduction in plastic packaging usage.
To increase pallet stability even further, we also recommended that the overlap on the wrap was increased from 50mm to 200mm. While this represents an increase in film usage, it’s far outweighed by a more efficient film and fewer damaged pallets.
