Stretch film for the (frozen) food industry

Consumers make their choice for a product partly on the basis of the packaging. This is not about the appearance of the packaging but also about whether the product is still properly packaged. Damaged or torn packaging remains and costs both the retailer and the producer money. Stretch film may seem to play a minor role in this, but nothing could be further from the truth. A well-packed and stabilised pallet considerably reduces the risk of damage. As a result, products arrive at their destination free of damage.

 

Stable pallets

Choosing the right stretch film plays an important role in this. A pallet with cans requires a different stretch film than a pallet with food boxes. This is precisely where the challenge lies for AFP. We are happy to study your process, your type of load and the problems you encounter. From there we look for the perfect solutions. Our goal is to realise stable pallets, smooth wrapping processes and to get your products to their final destination without damage.

Would you also like to transport your products safely?

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 negative 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, you will never use more film than necessary. This means lower costs and a significantly lower CO2 footprint than with a conventional stretch film.

Corner Crush

A common problem

Does the term Corner Crush sound familiar to you? It sounds quite intriguing, doesn’t it? In fact, it’s a technical term for damaging goods on the corner of a package or box. And this is something we – as AFP – often see in transport and logistics. The main reason of damage to the corners is when a pallet is wrapped too tightly and incorrectly, which causes the film to press too hard on the boxes and damage is caused by the force it exerts on the boxes.

“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.
