WHICH STRETCH WRAP IS BEST FOR A-B-C PALLET LOAD TYPE /FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 2021
Typ A Loads Uniform in shape. The load size closely matches the pallet size. These are the easiest loads to wrap. Few film puncture points exist. This type of load is often seen at manufacturing locations where the same product is prepared for shipment load-after-load.
Type B Loads Less uniform than type “A” loads. The stacking pattern may be irregular and /or the load size may not match the pallet size. Several film puncture points exist (more film selection judgement is required). Choosing correct film type is critical especially at high levels of film stretch and /or high film application tension. Type “B” loads appear at smaller manufacturing locations and distribution warehouse locations. Each pallet contains two or three products destined for a single destination.
Type C Loads No two loads are the same. Their size and shape range are typically all different. Sharp points seem to be everywhere and /or there is a major difference between the load and the pallet size. Film selection is critical. Type “C” loads are assembled at the distribution centers that supply retail store locations (i.e. grocery, drug, pet supply, automotive). Each load may contain dozens of different products.
