When products are shipped, they become vulnerable to sudden movements, improper handling, and environmental elements. These dangers can result in damaged goods, unplanned labour, and costly reverse logistics processes. Stretch wrapping, also known as pallet wrapping, is a process of unitizing a pallet of goods to reduce the risk of damage before they reach their final delivery destination.
Stretch film is a thin, stretchable plastic film – typically made from polyethylene. Stretch wrap film is used to lock and secure cased goods onto a pallet. As stretch film is wrapped around a pallet, tension is applied, enabling the film to extend its length by up to 300%. There are 2 main types of stretch film – hand stretch film and machine stretch film.
