Wrong wrap costing thousands

July 30, 2013

The majority of businesses operating in the UK are overlooking an area of their supply chain operation where significant cost savings can be made. Warehouse managers can tell you precisely how much they are paying for, for example, their forklift truck fleet, but often have no idea what it is costing them to wrap a pallet, says Martyn Sumner, managing director of Golden Valley Pallet Wrap Specialists Ltd (GVPS). Instead of asking the up front costs of a roll of film, the savvy buyer should consider how many pallets he or she will be able to wrap from that roll of film, he adds.
