Do you know what impact your loading dock injury prevention plan has? Does it pose a safety hazard? You know what? Below, we can come to see specifically!

As we all know, if the damage is occurred in the workplace, it is a very expensive – it is embodied in the in many ways, for example, lost days, pay increases, the loss of reputation, commitment to the employees of the company, to work overtime, even is the basic moral costs, etc., these losses for a company, it is very serious. If you want to protect workers, you can do nothing reasonable.

So, do you know what the company is trying to do? It tries to prevent unsafe activities and behavior, thereby reducing the number of preventable workplace and loading docks, which is what the company is trying to accomplish. Actually, it’s not surprising. One of the core principles of a lean approach is to do so.

What you need to do is to design a risk-free process.

Identifying high-risk activities is a typical step, and it is easy to identify when loading dock bends and elevating such tasks. Also, process changes need to be implemented. Do you know why? It is also important that the demands for the workers’ actions that cause harm need to be eliminated.

The task of using a pallet wrapper to reduce the unpleasantness and vulnerability of hand-wrappers is a good example of this, and we can look at it. Generally speaking, we all think manual packing is cheap and convenient. In fact, it’s not the right idea, in other words, it’s a misconception. In addition to not requiring a machine, it typically increases operating costs in several ways:

First, it needed more film, which resulted in higher material costs being wasted. Second, longer time needs to be spent, because its throughput is slow, which leads to the increase of product damage rate in transportation, which is a few performances of increasing operating costs! As we all know, the load does not consistently contain and lock onto the tray.


Do you know any harm in the damaged products?

Do you know any harm in the damaged products? Do you know what the bad effects are? In fact, we can judge by experience that it can have a negative impact, for example, it can hurt your company’s profits.

Do you know what the stretch film does? It can fix the product and packaging on the tray. At the same time, it can help companies to reduce losses, which are usually caused by damage to products caused by transport losses.

But when the load fails, and the damaged products need to be processed, the impact factor is a lot. For example, it will be affected by the receiving end. At the same time, the entire supply chain may be affected. This is a bad situation.

First, we can make a hypothesis that a manufacturer often sends less than a truckload of goods. If there is any damage to their pallets and unusable conditions, at least for the consignee, do you know what it means? As we all know, it may not be equal to large freight charges. However, the important link between the shipper and the customer is still possible.

Do you know what the consequences might be? It could put relationships at risk, and the shipper’s loss of customers and income would also occur. Not to mention, if their customers can’t buy the product, do you know what their customers will make? It is likely to go elsewhere. So, for their sales, their sales could be hurt. And, as we can see, the damage could be huge.

For small vendors, do you know what the “butterfly effect” of wrong deterrence might lead to? Once that happens, product damage and shipping losses will occur. The end result is to erode any profits they may receive from their customers. This is a terrible result. Do you know what the small supplier will respond to? They are more dependent on each shipment of safe goods. Their brand image is important, and their brand image is heavily dependent on shipping companies, but it really depends on their stretching packaging and stretch film. So, we can see that the stretch wrap and stretch film are really important for the maintenance and protection of the products!




Do you know that there are three rules for stretching?

Do you know that there are three rules for stretching? It can help your LTL load to appear in one section

Is this a problem or an opportunity? We can have a look at it!

Do you know what LTL is? – it is less than truck load – it is a challenge for pallet load.

Usually, they are very low in size. So we can see that their order is fragile and unstable. Or, they have a weird size. But, we all know that they are the hardest stretching membrane. And because they handle so much, we all know that they are at great risk of being damaged during transit. This is a very bad thing.

But don’t worry. Because we can reduce this risk in a certain way. What you need to do is follow these three rules, which is important. When the L load is covered by you, the chance that they can safely arrive at your client’s wharf will be greatly increased. It’s very good for you.

Now, let’s take a look at rule 1 – rule 1 is to pack them up!

Stretching is all about tension. Here we have guidelines that tell you a lot of things. How to wrap a more standard load is something you should know. What does it mean? How many pounds of containment you should have on your load is something you should know. However, in the load of L, we can see too many changes, so it’s very difficult if you want to apply them.

You know what the most important thing is? You know what’s not likely to happen? Those who actually stretch the inclusions have tools that measure the “tightness” of each load of their packages, which is what we often call a deterrent.
