Five Benefits of Using Stretch Wrap


Are you searching for a better way to wrap and protect your loads? Stretch wrap is one of the most efficient, versatile, and cost-effective packaging solutions. Using the correct pallet wrap is invaluable compared to the cost of potential damage during shipping and storage. Generally used to secure goods on a pallet for transportation or warehouse storage, stretch wrap is pulled around the load and stretched into place. The plastic has a ‘memory’ and wants to return to its original size, creating an elastic band effect, which holds the load tightly in place.

Stretch wrap can be easily applied to load of various shapes and sizes. The removal is very quick and easy also, you simply cut down one size to release the tension and remove the material by hand for recycling.

So, what are the five core benefits of using stretch wrap?

Increased Product Protection

Wrapping your loads with pallet wrap will protect them for environmental elements, like dirt, dust, and moisture. This keeps your product clean and dry. If you opt for stretch films with UVI, your product load will also be protected from UV rays when stored outdoors.

Reduced Product Damage and Increased Load Stability

Stretch film allows you to secure your products and create a more stable load that has less chance of moving while being transported around in your warehouse by forklift, reducing the chances of damaging the product or injuring the staff.

Improved Shipping and Handling

Stretch pallet wrap combined with an angled board, lets you stack your load higher on pallets, this maximizes your cube space when storing or shipping your product. It also allows you to wrap your loads quickly, increasing your working productivity allowing staff to get more work completed in a day. The flexibility of pallet wrap allows you to stabilise hard-to-stack or odd-shaped loads that are unable to be stacked neatly.

Better Inventory Control

By storing similar products together, your inventory can be organised easier and more accurately, reducing the chance of product separation, which can make the inventory counts inefficient, and time consuming. Utilising clear stretch wrap allows you to scan straight through when completing stock take allows for RFI scanning and visual checks without removing the plastic protection.
