We examine the impact of seven operational variations on manual wrapping, robo wrapping and tunnel wrapping
The binding or wrapping of outbound palletized product is a necessary function of all manual selection operations in distribution services. A common question we are asked by many operations is: “Who should be wrapping our pallets, and how should we wrap them?” The answer is likely to change based on your operational characteristics. In this paper, we explore three common pallet wrapping techniques found in distribution centers and provide a justification for the best option based on the overall operational impact on a targeted warehouse.
