We reviewed the properties of the film to determine the best stretch level or “Sweet Spot. Once we determined the benchmark, we observed that most of the results were significantly below what is recommended.
Our research indicated that if the company continued using the same settings, the approx. rolls of film consumed in 2019 would be 6,900 and the approx. spending would be $450 based on 1,600 pallets per shift. However, proper benchmarking, machine set up and film type can reduce this number of rolls consumer to 2,824 and the spending to $180,000
