Our MD, Mark Barter, features in the current edition of Packaging News, as industry leaders discuss pallet stretch wrapping.
As part of their technology focus in Packaging News, Mark was one of three leading pallet stretch wrapping commentators who was asked about new equipment; current trends; sustainability; and the pandemic. Mark and the other experts were also asked about their predictions for the remainder of the year.
As MD of Wessex Packaging, Mark is at the forefront of pallet wrap developments across the packaging industry and has lead the way in introducing PowerWrap® multi-layer nano stretch film, and the range of PowerWrapper semi-automatic pallet wrapping machines into the business.
This market-leading approach has enabled Mark, and the team here at Wessex Packaging, to work with some of the UK’s largest logistic, supply chain and manufacturing companies to help them wrap pallets more efficiently and sustainably.
Technicians from Wessex Packaging work on-site at companies across the UK, bringing with them a PowerWrapper machine that is used with PowerWrap® machine film to optimise the wrap weight and hold force for maximum performance. This has demonstrated significant plastic reduction savings, but also greater clarity of pallet wrap film; enhanced load stability; and overall, a far more efficient cost per pallet wrapped.
In the Packaging News article Mark discusses how plastic reduction has been a big theme this year, driven by companies wanting to improve their environmental credentials. This has resulted in reductions of between 50 – 60% in the amount of pallet wrap plastic used by companies that Wessex Packaging have advised.
Mark also discusses the increase in demand during the pandemic in the e-commerce sector, and how the strong trends of sustainability and e-commerce will continue as ways of working and consumer demands evolve.
You can read all of Mark’s article in the May edition of Packaging News which is available in print or downloadable on their website.
