Stretch Wrap Usage Reduction

The Problem

Before Omni approached BevChain with the ‘Perfect Pallet Wrapping Solution’, they were unaware of how much money and plastic they were wasting with low-performance stretch wrap. There were also other problems they were aware of but couldn’t find a solution.

Key Problems:

  1. 191 grams of stretch wrap used to wrap each pallet
  2. 16,044kg of stretch wrap used per year
  3. Stretch wrap breakages causing downtime
  4. Pallet wrapping costs were high and increasing

The Challenge

BevChain was severely overwrapping their pallets. When Omni approached them, significant stretch wrap savings became obvious. The challenge was to achieve maximum savings, they needed a new pallet wrapping machine. With pallet wrapping expenses already too high, this extra capital expenditure wasn’t allowed for.

Stretch Wrap Usage = 16,040kg (Per Year)

The Solution

The Omni Euro Cast Machine Stretch Wrap was the perfect solution to BevChain’s pallet wrapping problems. After conducting several load containment and stretch film usage tests, Omni Group was pleased to present huge environmental and financial savings as well as significantly increasing wrapping efficiencies.

Solution Summary
Stretch Wrap Usage = 16,040kg (Per Year)
  • Award-winning Euro Stretch Wrap
  • Roll changes reduced from 10.4 per day to 5.3
  • Stretch wrap reduction equivalent to 52 skip bins per year
  • Puncture force of stretch wrap increased by 300%
  • Stretch wrap cost reduced by $27,066/year

The Result

The implementation of the Omni Pallet Wrapping Solution provides astounding financial and environmental benefits for GWA Bathrooms & Kitchens. A 69.6% stretch wrap reduction is equivalent to over 36.3 tonnes of film per year. This volume of stretch wrap would fill 182 skip bins every year. By increasing their stretch wrap efficiency GWA Bathrooms & Kitchens save over $79,200 per year.

Not only did they significantly reduce pallet wrapping costs and carbon footprint, they increased their warehouse efficiency. One roll of Omni Stretch Wrap can wrap 52 pallets which is double the amount of the conventional stretch wrap. Less roll changes means less pallet wrapping downtime.

“Omni Group’s philosophy is to exceed our clients’ expectations and to do more than they ask or think. Giving you what you want is our priority but exceeding what you even thought is our goal.”
