To have successful packaging, you need to pay attention to the individual items, giving good insulation and impact resistance and puncture resistance. As packs are made into master cartons, and retail display units, you need to take care to reinforce the product protection during each phase of this. If you want trouble-free shipping, you need to do this with pallet level packaging.
Having items secured and contained is one of the main goals for packing these pallets, and with the help of tools and other products that are made for this, you’ll be able to keep everything safe. You need to look at shipping and the correct features that lead to better pallets to transport. Shipments are good to help get items out, but you’ll want to start from the base upwards when you’re packing items.
First, consider the corrugated deck pads and the edge protectors. Soundly constructed pallets start with the bottom, and there are several corrugated material varieties that are used to separate the pallet layers. Single, double, and triple-wall strengths allow for products to be stacked on pallets, including machinery and appliances that are protected by three-layer varieties.
There are anti-slip kraft paper pads that give more friction against the movement and keeping items in place until they should be moved. White cardboard varieties serve for good lighter uses, and specialized honeycomb sheets are good for protection in between layers.
As you build up the pallet layers, you should put edge protector on every single corner, with corrugated pad liners that create continuity across the full pallet. Edge protection runs through various lengths and depending on how high the pallet is built, you’ll have to adjust this. Printed versions are good too since they warn against double stacking. You should also look to reinforce the strapping too when it comes into contact with the box edges.
Then there are strapping supplies. When you stack and wrap them, you can secure it with strapping. Steel, polypropylene, and polyester strapping allow for more security, keeping the pallet content in place when handled. Strapping is good to help reinforce the contact points where the poly and the steel straps meet the cardboard and the other materials are subject to strap damage. You should use tensioners and sealers, and you can seal this for shipment. On the receiving end, you can cut these bands with steel sheers.
Finally, consider stretch wrapping. This will allow for enhancing and preventing puncture of the items. It’s important to consider this one since it will allow you to stretch it using plastic film. It’s great for varying amounts, and in turn, you’ll be able to protect your items.
When it comes to pallets, you’ll want to protect them in the right kinds of ways, which means that you should look at all of the different means that are there, and start to put forth new and innovative means to ensure that you have enough protection, so that it’s secured.
