Unitized packaging secures loads to the pallet with stretch wrap. Using this method of security for loads will provide many advantages to your business and customers, including easier logistics management, lowered expenses, and substantial improvements to the safety of both your personnel and your product.
If you’re curious about the benefits of unitization and how to use unitization in your shipping, transportation and logistics management, Cousins Packaging can talk you through the process and advise you on the right machinery needed to properly wrap your pallets and inventory.
Unitization is all about protecting the product and ensuring safe transport, but it also provides numerous other benefits:
Unitizing your packaging provides significant cost savings up front, and the automation options for load unitization make it an excellent way to increase productivity. Additionally, the extra security for the items you are shipping reduces the likelihood of product damage in transit, resulting in higher profits to your business and the confidence of knowing your shipment is much more likely to reach its final destination safely.
The wrapping machines needed to unitize packaging do represent a significant investment. However, years of research in logistics management have indicated that the benefits of load unitization make that investment well worth the initial cost. Continuing to use traditional shipping methods may expose your products to a number of issues:
Between the increased expense of handling many loose items and the money that must be recouped when items are lost to theft or damage, deciding not to unitize packaging may force you to pass additional costs on to your customers.
When you’re looking to maximize profit, you want to do everything as cost-effectively as possible. Unitized packaging will help you accomplish this goal while also benefiting your customers and simplifying your logistics management.
Get more productivity in your shipping with unitized packaging. Using a pallet wrapping machine to secure your load will increase savings, decrease the likelihood of theft and product damage, and significantly improve the productivity of your warehouse.
