Your partner for smart tools in packaging
THINKING OUTSIDE THE PALLET. Pack Tools 2.0 BV is your partner for the safe, efficient, economic and sustainable packaging of pallet loads. We help our customers with advice, we conduct research and take care of certification. On top of that, we develop ingenious tools and applications that make manual wrapping easier, quicker, safer and cheaper.
Sustainability, ergonomics, road safety, reducing TCO and working fast and safe are the 5 corner stones on which we base our solutions.
Enough is Enough!
Pack Tools helps you to achieve better load stability with less film. Definitely a win-win situation!
The manufacturing of hand stretch film highly contributes to the emission of carbon dioxide worldwide. In order to reduce their carbon footprint, manufacturers came to the idea of “reuse”. But however recycling seems obvious, this strategy actually achieves the opposite: It ENHANCES emissions!
- ‘Reused’ implies that old film should be collected, transported back to the production facility and reproduced into a new role of stretch film. All those steps add to the emission of carbon dioxide.
- Reused film, however 4 times thicker, offers less stability than the original film. So you need more of it in order to achieve the same load stability.
In logistics, the absence rate is traditionally high. Back pain and other work related injuries cause long-term staff outages which force operational costs to rise. Unnecessarily, we say. Why risk the health of your employees if there are solutions available that help relieve physical effort?
Healthier, happier, cheaper
Pack Tools makes stabilising pallets not only EASIER and LESS RESTRAINING. We make it also MORE FUN!
The average damage rate on transported goods reaches up to 4%. Worldwide we are talking about billions of dollars/euro’s! Even more worrying though, is the fact that insufficiently secured loads pose a serious threat to road safety.
We care about businesses AND people
National governments try to limit the amount of road accidents due to sliding load by increasing legislation and fines. Pack Tools rather tackles this issue at the source. Our solutions enable you to achieve consistent load stability and meet international legislation. Our objective is to make transportation more safe. For the sake of all of us.
Reducing total cost of ownership (TCO)
When it comes to the pricing of stretch film, the cheapest ones often turn out to be the most expensive. Why? Because people tend to forget about the additional costs. For example the yearly contribution (tax) on waste. Or ‘tarra’, the amount of unusable weight added just for transportation of the film. And how can you be sure that there are really 300 meters of film on a supposed 300m role?
Time for clarity
Pack Tools focusses on the initial purpose of stretch film: to achieve a consistent and safe load stability. We believe it is time to show you the real price/performance ratio of your current stretch film.
work smart, fast, safe
In logistics, a lot of work-related injuries are the result of using heavy and impractical tools. Especially when it comes to stabilising pallets, ordinary equipment forces operators to walk backwards and with a bent back. A recipe for physical strain in our book.
Work ‘smart’ instead of ‘hard’
At Pack Tools, we invent light-weight tools and equipment which make working in warehouses significantly safer, easier and more ergonomic. No more ‘intermediate wrapping’ for internal transport or lost waiting time at the automatic wrapping station.
the solutions of pack tools
Pack Tools 2.0 BV offers you smart and simple solutions to make manual labor in your warehouse more efficient, more economic and more fun.
Full automation is not always benificial.
over 40 years of experience
Pack Tools 2.0 BV roots start in 1980, when pallet stretch machines were rarely installed.
In the early 1980s Mobil Plastics introduced the first hand wrap system. Since then, hand wrapping has evolved into a global market that includes millions of users. In the 1990s our sister company started producing pre-stretch hand film. In 1999 we developed our first tool to apply this film with ease and a consistent load containment force on the pallet loads.
Today, 45% of all stretch film is still applied by hand. Pack Tools 2.0 BV took up the challenge to bring hand pallet wrap to a professional level. Hand wrap taken seriously.
Our smart calculations
Pack Tools 2.0 developed some smart calculation tools. This helps you to check the specifications of the supplied stretch film and to calculate the real costs of wrapping your pallets.
