Stretch film for the animal feed industry

Pallet loads in the animal feed industry are often heavy and diverse. A pallet load with bags of animal feed makes specific demands on the stretch film other than, for example, a pallet of canned or frozen animal feed. At the same time, we see our customers paying a lot of attention to sustainability in combination with the use of stretch film. And due to the increase in goods transport on the road, the need for pallet stability has become even greater. We have not only developed high quality stretch films for this purpose, we also take care of the entire process when it comes to achieving optimum pallet stability by optimising your process.

Stable pallets

It may seem easy to pack pallets with stretch film. Because what can go wrong? Unfortunately, more than you might think. Bottle pallets are generally heavy and require pallet stability. AFP has developed stretch films especially for this type of pallet. And our people make sure that everything in your packaging process runs smoothly. This gives you the certainty of optimally packaged pallets at the lowest Total Cost of Ownership.

WITH AFP, YOUR PRODUCTS GO SAFE ON TRANSPORT

Due to a strong increase in road freight transport, the need for pallet stability has only increased in recent years. Unstable pallets can have a major impact on safety, efficiency and costs. AFP is the partner to help reduce these risks.
In addition, AFP is always looking for sustainable solutions. By optimally wrapping pallets, we never use more film than necessary. This means lower costs and a considerably lower CO2 footprint than with a conventional stretch film.

Interview with Jelle Dendauw from ESTL

How to get your products safely on the road

How do you secure a thousand bottles of coke to a truck so that it remains standing, even if the driver suddenly has to brake or swerve? A typical question about load stability, such as Jelle Dendauw, who often comes across at his company ESTL.

Dendauw is one of the co-founders of ESTL in Deerlijk, Belgium. He was an engineer in mechanical engineering and actually ended up in the cargo insurance business by accident, in 2009. That year is no coincidence, because in 2009 Belgium received new legislation on cargo stability.

Load security and regulations from EUMOS

“truck overturned after nearly losing cargo”, “truck loses complete cargo on roundabout”, “truck ends up in the ditch”

Anyone reading these headlines may not be aware that all these accidents may have been caused by the fact that the cargo transported was not sufficiently stable. The European Council and the European Parliament are well aware that poorly secured cargo leads to more than 1 000 deaths and many more serious injuries every year.
