Running a business that relies on products means you need to carefully consider the distribution of those items. Those products are what keep your company running and transportation is often rough—this can lead to product damage and profit loss. Facilities are always searching for the best way to protect products during transportation to ensure they reach their destination intact. Investigate some of the best protective secondary packaging options to consider.
While individually loading products onto trucks and shipping containers may allow a few extra products to fit in the shipment, it puts products and primary packaging at risk of becoming damaged due to shifting. Unitizing loads is one of the best ways to protect your products and their primary packaging.
Companies can effectively unitize by loading individual items onto a pallet; this creates one solid unit from many smaller units. While hand palletizing is labor-intensive and time-consuming, Robopac USA offers industry-leading palletizer machines that do the heavy lifting for you.
Proper Stretch Wrapping
Stretch wrapping is the next step in load unitization. Even if workers properly stack products, if they don’t stretch wrap the load with the right containment force, the products won’t be entirely protected and could still topple over in the truck during transport.
With a Robopac USA stretch wrapping machine, your company can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with our state-of-the-art Cube Technology. Cube Technology, exclusive to Robopac USA machines, ensures your loads are wrapped with the exact right amount of containment force every single time. Cube Technology is proven to reduce product damage up to 40% and film costs 30 to 55%. Even if your facility is hurting for space and can’t house another bulky machine, you can invest in a portable pallet wrapper, which can move throughout and adapt to your facility, rather than the facility needing to adapt to it.
If you’re transporting something that requires a bit of extra packaging to keep it safe, a case packer machine may be just what your operation is missing. Case packer machines, also commonly known as shrink wrappers, shrink bundlers, wrap-around case packers, and combination packers, but all complete the same task: protecting your products. Case packers pack your products and can even add things such as trays, film, wrap-around boxes, pads, and more.
Everything in the case packer adds extra layers of protection and containment to your products while making them easier to handle, load, unload, and even present on the shelf for customers.
