Stretch film for general use
The choice of the right stretch film depends very much on the goods you are transporting. If it is a pallet with the same products or if it is different products in different packaging. The goal is to get your products to their destination safely at the lowest possible cost. The AFP range consists of a large number of different types of stretch film. Each with their own specific quality so that there is always a stretch film that suits your type of load.
We notice that stretch film is often not the first priority for our customers. We understand that. At the same time, we see that pallet stability, damage prevention and flexible packaging processes are high on the agenda. AFP can completely relieve you of this burden. Not only can we advise you on the right stretch film for your application, we can also integrate it seamlessly into your processes. In such a way that you have optimally stable pallets and a smooth packaging process without malfunctions.

STABLE PALLETS FOR ALL TYPES OF CARGO
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.Your products on the road

Interview with Jelle Dendauw from ESTL
How to get your products safely on the road
How do you secure a thousand bottles of soft drinks to a truck so 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 a mechanical engineer and actually ended up in the cargo insurance business by accident, in 2009. That year was no coincidence, because in 2009 Belgium received new legislation on cargo stability.Read more

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.Read more
