Pallets Double Stacked in a Truck Without Airbags

Image
This is what happens when you have well packed pallets with loads of stretch wrap and a few bands of PET strapping keeping the product on the pallet and the freight company double stacks the pallets without proper bracing with airbags, load bars or straps. 



Stacking pallets inside trucks without taking the time to brace them in place will only cost you more in the long run.  All this packaging has to be replaced and the pallets re-stacked.  The finished cost to do this will be $300-500.  
For more information on how to prevent this from happening to your pallets, contact us at:

Hot Melt verses Acrylic Tape

Image
If you are not already a tape guru, trying to determine whether your packaging application requires an acrylic tape, or a hot melt tape may raise some questions in your mind. But choosing the correct packaging tape for your application is essential to the presentation, protection and security of your product. Read on to understand the fundamental differences between hot melt carton sealing tapes and acrylic packaging tape, and what to expect with both.



Hot Melt Carton Sealing Tape Characteristics:
Hot melt tapes exhibit a significantly higher adhesion in comparison to an acrylic tape. They possess superior holding power (referred to as shear value) and tensile strength, with quick tack. A hot melt tape is ideal for applications involving machine applied tapes, overstuffed cartons, or cartons with a high degree of recycled content. They perform well in temperatures ranging from 45F to 120F.
Can be purchased in hand grade carton sealing rolls as well as machine grade rolls Provides easy…

ESSENTIAL STRETCH WRAP TERMINOLOGY

Image
With so many manufacturers misusing stretch wrap vocabulary, it can often be difficult to understand the true meaning of these terms. 
To help consumers understand the real meaning, we listed a few of the most commonly misused terms in the packaging industry.In doing so, we hope to educate consumers to not be fooled by deceptive terminology when evaluating stretch wrap options.
Pre-stretch is the process of elongated film to a percentage of its original length. The advantage of operating with pre-stretch is that it provides great load stability and allows you consume less film per pallet. Below are two different methods to obtain pre-stretch.
Pre-stretched stretch film is film that is stretched during the manufacturing process prior to being wound up in rolls for stretch film application. Most of pre-stretched stretch film is applied using hand wrap dispensers.


Another means of obtaining pre-stretch film is by elongated it using the motorized pre-stretch capabilities of a wrapper. Th…

Corrugated Price Increase 9% as of May 1st 2018

Image
On Friday, March 23rd, the Pulp and Paper publication confirmed the $50 per ton linerboard increase that had previously been announced by all major corrugated manufactures. Key reason behind the increase are the growth in demand for corrugated relative to capacity constraints, declining inventories, and ever-increasing transportation costs due to fuel and the nationwide driver shortage. 

While we understand that increases are painful, we cannot ignore material costs when commodity prices fluctuate.

Newsprint Paper From Canada

Image
We want to let you know that the Newsprint market is changing. Following a 2017 investigation by the US Department of Commerce into Canadian Newsprint plants for dumping product into the US market, while unfairly subsidizing their own market, approximately 25 Canadian Newsprint producers are being hit with preliminary countervailing duties of about 6.5%. 


Canada is the world's largest exporter of Newsprint and the majority of the Newsprint sold in the US comes from Canada. The US Department of Commerce will make a follow up decision on the anti-dumping duties in March 2018 and US International Trade Commission will be asked to make a ruling on the measures in August 2018. For now, we are expecting increased prices on Newsprint as well as potential scarcity. We will try to keep you abreast of the situation as new information becomes available. We appreciate your business, and thank you for your support.
Our suppliers are keeping us informed of this changing situation.
