Pallet wrap or stretch wrap (and sometimes wrongly called shrink wrap) is the most common way to secure goods to pallets. They are rolls of polythene on cardboard cores that stretch easily so a tight and secure wrap is formed around the pallet. It enables goods to be transported securely and prevents goods falling off pallets.
Always remember to tightly wind the stretch wrap at the base of the pallet so that the base of the goods and pallet are secured. There is no point just winding the pallet wrap around the goods if the base of the pallet has no coverage.
You can minimise your carbon footprint by ensuring you use pallet wrap correctly. To gain the benefits of pallet wrap it must be fully stretched when wrapping a pallet, this will ensure the pallet wrap is fixed tightly to the goods and more importantly to the pallet itself. You will also use far less stretch wrap which saves you money and helps reduce packaging waste.
