Studies show that up to 4% of all transported goods are damaged (source: KULeuven). The cause is often the transport packaging. These damages represent major economic losses throughout the different branches of industry. Transport damage generates not only waste, but also damage to image.
A well thought-out transport packaging system can reduce these losses and thus increase profitability.
ESTL carries out packaging testing in a scientific and pragmatic way to achieve the right balance. We help our customers guarantee stability by optimising their packaging process (e.g. wrapping film testing, packaging machine settings, making stacking diagrams, primary and secondary packaging concepts...).
Economic losses due to 'packaging' are mainly due to:
Transport packaging is the cornerstone of good cargo securing and is therefore an important safety aspect.
Before the optimisation, the customer had a high number of damages during transport. By optimising the transport packaging, we were able to significantly increase the stability. As a result, the customer has fewer transport problems. The following parameters were adjusted:
