Providing Protective Solutions for Transit and Storage
As online sales continue to surge, there is an ever increasing need to maximise the effectiveness of the material employed to protect products in storage and transit, and find ways to minimise the amount of packaging used.
There have been many reports in the media of online customers complaining about the inefficiency of the packaging used, where, all too often, there are breakages, and at the same time too much packaging used, obviously ineffectively and inefficiently.
This issue has been recognised by the industry, and consultative advice is offered to review packing methods, but there are many challenges that stand in the way of permanent improvements in packing methods and efficiencies.
One challenge is the employment of temporary staff at peak times. While they may be excellent workers, there is always the issue of training and consistency. In order to minimise training, packaging methods are often simplified, to a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach, which often involves small products being despatched in oversize boxes with large amounts of void fill inside.
The media outcry voices the scandal of waste, and the impact to the environment, as consumers are photographed with their living rooms full of discarded packaging…..and broken crockery!
There are many types and methods of packing products, and dependent on quantities, there will be a range of options available to you.
Test Valley Packaging can weigh in on the debate, and provide free no-obligation advice on your packaging needs however complex.
Below are some videos which show the work we have done in the past to help customers minimise packaging and maximise protection in the right areas!

Dynawrap is a pre-stretched pallewrap film that offers many benefits. Dynawrap is supplied in thicknesses between 6 to 10 micron and is very strong for its weight. During manufacture the film is stretched until any elasticity is taken up which gives a film that has little stretch left in the film, and when this is applied to the palletised load it gives excellent load retention and load stability because the lack of available stretch in the film effectively eliminates the potential for load movement in transit.
