The Problems With Hand Wrapping pallets.

Image
Ever since the creation of stretch wrapping, various types of applications have been developed for wrapping pallet loads. One of these methods includes hand wrapping which involves a person walking around the pallet, securing the load with a roll of hand-held stretch film.  Although some people might find this method useful today, it’s not always the most productive.


Depending on the size and structure of the pallet that you are wrapping, there is a large amount of bending and twisting involved in making sure that the entire pallet is wrapped thoroughly. Even with orderly and square pallets, hand wrapping requires that an employee walk around in circles which causes dizziness and may lead to a higher risk of harm for employees. Thus, hand wrapping could generate inefficiencies in the supply chain process as work injuries cause downtime, high insurance costs, and workers compensation. Sometimes you may even need to hire a replacement worker which could result in more time and money.
