Damaged loads due to product movement and shifting is frequent. Most of these accidents can be prevented if each palletized load was properly secured using stretch wrap. Before you ship a load, please make sure you follow these 7 basic steps to stretch wrap a pallet:
1. Tie end of stretch wrap around a pallet corner for an anchor.
2. Stretch wrap the pallet and bottom product at least two more times.
3. Grab a roll of stretch wrap or a stretch wrap tool.
4. Once you have reached the top of the load, layer the stretch film so that it pulls down on the product, reducing the chance of the load shifting.
5. Begin walking around the load and tightly securing the wrap across both the pallet and the load. Make sure the stretch wrap grasps the corners of the pallet. Wrap the bottom of the load three or more times.
6. Begin working your way back down the load, again overlapping each layer by 50%.
7. Cut the stretch wrap from the roll and secure it against the side of the load by pressing it firmly so that it will stick.
