Crates of Red Tomato On Pallets

Fruits, vegetables, and other perishable agricultural products require special considerations when preparing for shipment. Wrapping tension, type of shrink wrap, and ventilation are just a few of the many things that will help keep your crates of produce safe during transport.

Handle It offers a wide range of semi and fully automatic pallet wrappers for the agricultural industry. We also carry many accessories that will add value and improve the efficiency of your produce farm or feed mill shipping department.

Regardless of whether you’re a small co-op farm or a large agricultural conglomerate, Handle It pallet wrappers provide a variety of benefits, such as:

  • Reduce damaged and lost products
  • Improve efficiencies
  • Lower packaging material costs

Guard Rails for Agriculture

  • Forklift driving lanes
  • Shipping and packing departments
  • Pedestrian walkways
  • Warehouse rack aisles
  • Pallet racking
