Pro Tips

Here are several Pro Tips that will help you optimize plastic wrapping boxes for transport.

  • A standard load of boxes that weighs less than 2,000lbs shouldn’t need more than ~3 revolutions for the top and bottom wrap settings.  
  • Perform an initial test wrapping to ensure how fast (or slow) you need to go for subsequent pallets.
  • Extra top revolutions can help provide more strength for unstable or top-heavy loads.
  • Once you’re finished wrapping, double-check the bottom wrap to ensure it’s securely attached to the pallet.
  • Unless you have fragile boxes, try initially setting the tension point at 20%. Over time, you’ll get a better sense of how to optimize the wrapping cycle to optimize shrink wrap usage.



The below industries all use boxes of various shapes and sizes that can be more efficiently and securely wrapped with a Handle It semi or fully-automatic shrink wrap machine.


Food & Beverage

Global conglomerates, start-up brands, grocery suppliers, and local food banks all use boxes and can benefit from a pallet wrapper.


Pallet wrappers can help commercial farms, marijuana farms, urban farms, and other agricultural concerns safely get their perishable boxed products to the market or distribution centers.

Consumer Packaged Goods

Improve efficiencies, reduce damage, and allow boxed consumer packaged goods to quickly get to their intended destination with a fully automatic pallet wrapper from Handle It.


Pallet wrappers can help manufacturing companies of all sizes wrap boxed products and materials while reducing the chances of damage during transport.


Pharmaceutical products are fragile in nature—semi and fully automatic pallet wrappers help ensure that boxes stay securely on the pallet until they reach their final destination.

Retail Commerce

Big box and other retail stores regularly get shipments from their warehouses. Pallet wrappers help cut down on product damage and prevent shrinkage that could otherwise occur with hand-wrapped pallets.

Warehousing & Logistics (3PL)

Bonded warehouses and other 3PL logistics facilities have a constant influx and outflow of pallets—many are hand-wrapped and almost falling apart. A semi or fully automatic pallet wrapper helps secure the boxed loads for land, sea, or air shipment.
