Wessex Packaging is introducing PowerWrap® nano stretch film pallet wrap to help lower plastic consumption.
This new generation of pallet wrap is far stronger than conventional pallet films and Wessex Packaging is proving that it can reduce the amount of plastic used per pallet by 50%.
Working with warehouse managers, logistics teams and supply chain operations across the country, PowerWrap® is delivering pallet wrapping benefits for load stability; clarity of product presentation; and lowering the Packaging Waste Recovery Note (PRN) obligation for many businesses.
By running no-obligation pallet wrap audits, Wessex Packaging is helping warehouse and logistics teams to identify the real cost involved in wrapping pallets and working together to make improvements and help the teams hit some of their operational and environmental KPIs..
This is helping them save time, cut plastic waste and reduce packaging costs.
In one recent 30 minute pallet wrap audit, a massive £50k per year saving was identified, through a more accurate pallet wrapping machine setting and by removing the use of a thicker, heavier pallet film and introducing PowerWrap® to provide the most efficient pallet film.
For warehouse managers, operations managers, or those running a logistics or supply chain distribution centre, Wessex Packaging is setting the challenge to deliver more for less.
The team at Wessex Packaging recognises that there are many misconceptions about wrapping pallets which can mask process improvements, including:
– Thicker pallet wrap film isn’t always stronger.
– Wrapping pallets more times isn’t always safer.
– The cheapest pallet film roll price isn’t always the lowest cost.
– Pallet wrapping machinery isn’t always a big capital outlay.
Wessex Packaging uses the pallet wrap audit to help operations and logistics teams make their pallet wrapping more efficient and sustainable.
Often, they find pallet wrapping machines in warehouses that are ageing, damaged or outdated, causing a wasteful wrapping process. And the challenge to these operations teams is to see if they know the real cost of wrapping pallets.
