Reduced film cost per pallet
Less film per pallet reduces waste and environmental impact
Efficient wrapping processes – no stoppages, breakages or punctures
Decreased supply chain costs by eliminating rejected, non-conforming shipments
Your shipment arrives at it destination in its ‘as-packed’ state
Over the last decade technology advancements in both resin and extrusion capabilities, has resulted in next-generation, high performance films with greater strength, stretch, and puncture resistance to ensure safe load containment.
As these advanced properties cannot be determined by simply looking at a roll of stretch film. Selecting the right wrap should start within your warehouse environment, take into consideration your load and processes, before systematically testing and trailing the wrap to determine the right film for you.
Factors to consider:
Type of machine being used, or if applying the film by hand, then the experience of the team
Types of loads being wrapped
Distance travelled during transit
Modes of transport
Through systematic testing, objective analysis, and validated results, Signet can help you reduce waste, increase wrapping efficiency, and ensure you are equipped with quality materials to get your goods to their destination damage free. Signet offer a comprehensive range of analysis techniques.
Signet’s Continuous Improvement Programs
The choice of film is only one factor Signet's Accredited Lean Practitioners consider when they oversee a program to optimise your Tertiary Packaging Processes. Programs includes a walk of your site to identify improvement opportunities, a planning session with your team to determine priorities before developing an agreed plan of action. Our experts analyse your machinery, materials, processes and the work environment and work with you to optimise your stretch film processes for safe and cost-effective load containment.
Signet’s structured process improvement projects have delivered significant cost savings for Australia’s largest retailers and logistics operators.
The hidden costs of poor load containment
Is your stretch film doing it's job? A recent study found 4% of all transported goods are damaged on arrival. When choosing a pellet wrap, it is important to be aware of what lies beneath the surface.
