Pallet stability in the beverage industry

Pallet loads in the soft drink industry are generally heavy and require the necessary pallet stability. At the same time, much attention is paid to sustainability in combination with the use of stretch film. Due to the increase of freight transport on the road, the need for pallet stability has only increased. AFP has developed the Katan-Ex Beverage multi-layer stretch film especially for this purpose. Thanks to this stretch film, your products will arrive safely and without damage at its destination.

Stable pallets

It may seem easy to package pallets with stretch film. Because what could go wrong? Unfortunately more than you might think. Pallets with bottles are generally heavy and require the necessary pallet stability. Our people make sure that your wrapping process runs smoothly by using the right film for your load and optimizing your wrapping machines. As a result, you can be sure of optimally packed pallets at the lowest Total Cost of Ownership.

YOUR PRODUCTS STABLE AND SAFE ON THE ROAD

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

Interview with Jelle Dendauw from ESTL

How your products can be transported safely

How do you fasten a thousand coke bottles on a lorry so that they remain standing, even if the driver has to brake or swerve suddenly? It’s a typical question about load stability, and just one of the many that Jelle Dendauw deals with at ESTL, his company in Deerlijk. Dendauw, who trained as a mechanical engineer, is a co-founder of the Belgian company ESTL and only became involved in load securement more or less by accident in 2009.

Pallet stability and EUMOS Regulation

‘Truck turns over after nearly losing cargo’, ‘Truck loses entire cargo on roundabout’, ‘Truck ends up in ditch.’ Anyone reading these headlines probably does not realise that these accidents were probably caused by improperly secured cargo or a lack of pallet stability.
