Stretch film for the pet food industry
Pallet loads in the pet food industry are often heavy and diverse. A pallet load with bags of pet food places different demands on the stretch film than, for example, a pallet of canned or frozen pet food. At the same time, we see our customers paying a lot of attention to sustainability in combination with the use of stretch film. Due to the increase in freight transport on the road, the need for pallet stability has become even greater. Not only have we developed high quality stretch films for this purpose, we also make sure that we achieve optimal pallet stability. We do this by perfecting your wrapping process.
It may seem easy to pack pallets with stretch film. After all, what can go wrong? Unfortunately, more than you might think. Pallets with pet food are generally heavy – think of heavy bags of pet food – and require a lot of pallet stability. AFP has developed stretch films especially for pallets in the pet food industry. Our Technical Specialists ensure that everything in your wrapping process runs smoothly. This gives you the certainty of optimally packaged pallets at the lowest Total Cost of Ownership.

Do you want 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 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 soda 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 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
