For many companies in the chemical, building materials or food industries, the efficient packaging of palletized goods is a deciding competitive factor. Some of the crucial factors are transport security, anti-theft protection, display characteristics of the packaged goods and weatherproofing for outside storage. Additional key considerations are process efficiency and cost reduction (energy and material consumption), as well as system output (the number of pallets that can be packaged during a specific amount of time). All of this needs to be taken into account to determine the perfect packaging technology, as noted in a new report published by an industry leader. Stretch hooding has proven to be particularly efficient in comparison with other techniques.
The technical report from Beumer Group (Somerset, NJ), a global company specializing in intralogistics related to conveying, loading, palletizing, packaging, sorting and distribution technologies, helps manufacturers select the optimal and most cost-efficient palletized packaging for their goods, whether that's wrapping, shrinking or stretching.
