Reducing packaging waste and carbon emissions in the pharmaceutical industry through optimising transit packaging and packaging operations

Optimal packaging performance reduces packaging waste, material costs and CO2 emissions

One of the biggest misconceptions is that adding more pallet wrap will provide extra protection and stability for your goods.

Eliminate unnecessary packaging waste

Overwrapping pallets can be counterproductive to pallet stability, cost more money and create unnecessary plastic waste. Lindum work directly with manufacturers to calculate the exact amount of stretch film required for optimal stability. This not only reduces the amount of plastic waste and minimises environmental impact, it also reduces packaging costs and improves operational packaging efficiencies.

How we

optimise transit packaging in the pharmaceutical industry

We start by analysing your packaging material usage, machines and processes. Our expert team will identify ways to optimise load stability and generate operational efficiencies to reduce packaging costs and eliminate unnecessary waste. Before implementing any changes to your packaging operations, Lindum offer a testing service to ensure pallet stability in transit conditions.


Eliminate goods damaged in transit with the right combination of stretch wrap film and pallet stabilisation products. Lindum will calculate the exact amounts required for optimal stability and optimise your machine settings. Combined with testing in our Innovation Centre and Pallet Stability Test Lab, Lindum ensure your goods are protected in transit conditions.


Working with Lindum will identify long term savings in recurring material costs. But more than that, we will uncover hidden efficiencies in your packaging operations that save money by reducing downtime, reducing labour costs, reducing health and safety risks and reducing the cost of goods damaged in transit.


Lindum offer sustainable packaging solutions with the majority of our products containing 30% recycled content. We also help you achieve your CSR goals by reducing plastic waste and CO2 emissions.
