Reducing GWA's stretch wrap usage, waste and costs.

Their focus is on product innovation, operational excellence and exceptional service to ensure the best outcome for their customers. To achieve that vision, it is critical for Franklin Web to partner with the most innovative and reliable suppliers.

The problem:

The industry has been a stagnant, stretch wrap was previously only available in 20 to 25-micron thickness with very low stretch yield and strength. Tonnes of unnecessary plastic waste accumulates in landfill each year due to old fashion and inefficient pallet wrapping methods. Before Omni approached GWA Group with the ‘Perfect Pallet Wrapping Solution’, they were unaware of how much money and plastic they are wasting with low performance stretch wrap.
  • Over wrapped pallets, causing higher plastic consumption.
  • Stretch wrap breakages causing downtime.
  • High and increasing pallet wrapping costs.
The challenge:
The implementation on the Omni Pallet Wrapping Solution provides astounding financial and environment benefits for Franklin Web. A 48.8% stretch wrap reduction is equivalent to over 25.56 tonnes of stretch wrap per year. This volume of stretch wrap would fill 128 skip bins every year. By increasing their pallet stretch wrapping efficiency Franklin Web save over $32845 per year.
Not only did they significantly reduce pallet wrapping costs and carbon foot print, they increased their warehouse efficiency. One roll of Omni Stretch Wrap can wrap 65.71 pallets which is double the amount of the conventional stretch wrap. Less roll changes means less pallet wrapping downtime.

The solution:
The Omni Pallet Wrapping Machines and Omni Stretch Wrap was the perfect solution for GWA Group. After conducting several containment, film puncture and plastic usage tests, Omni Group were able to offer significant environmental and financial savings.

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

  • Omni Base Pallet Wrapping Machine with power pre-stretch scales and auto cut off.
  • Stretch wrap usage reduced by nearly 70%.
  • Stretch wrap cost significantly reduced by more than $80,000 per year
