ebook-cover-shockwatch-b

When it comes to determining product damage, someone with true shipping accountability is king. Logistics is all about preparing for the unforeseen. It is the science of product risk management. Picking, pulling, packaging, loading, and shipping: at some point, you’re going to experience some kind of damage, somewhere in the supply chain.

Rite-Gauging: The quickest way to improve product protection

Stretch Wrap Automation

What is “rite-gauging?” Rite-gauging is the application of the correct film, thickness, overlap, revolutions, and force-to-load that ensures equal containment force to the top, middle, and bottom of a pallet load.
