At this moment the stretch wrapping foil is dominating the pallet packaging market.  Stretch wrapping foil has to be turned under tension around the pallet.  With the help of its memory, the foil tries to get back its original form.  By doing this the pallet is being held together strongly.  This type of pallet packaging can be done manually either machinally.

Another way of pallet packaging is using a shrink hood.  Here a plastic hood with a size a bit larger than the pallet is sliced over the pallet.  When done the foil needs to be heated in order to shrink.  By shrinking  the foil, the goods are strongly kept together onto the pallet.  This type of packing can be done manually (but you still need a heater of course) either on fully automated lines.

Since more than 10 years a new type of pallet packaging has been developped.  This new packaging technology was possible thanks to narrow cooperation between packaging machine constructors and polyolefin manufacturors.  The result is a revolutionary packing way having the pallet packed hermetically, strongly, cheaply and fastly.
