Velcro USA Inc has announced its latest invention: the Velcro brand Logistrap. This reusable and versatile strap is designed for materials handling applications in distribution centers, warehouses, and closed-loop logistics to secure pallet boxes, sleeve packs, and collapsible containers.
“Many of our customers struggle with the huge amount of waste caused by shrink wrap or stretch films, as well as the costs involved with single-use solutions,” said Chris Lerra, business development manager at Velcro USA. “The Logistrap is designed for our customers to meet their business targets whether decreasing costs, reducing environmental impact, improving health and safety, or overall efficiencies.”
Compared with shrink wrap per pallet annually, Logistrap offers a cost savings of 57% and a waste reduction of 100% (based on a pool of 10,000 pallets, moved 10 times per year, over a span of three years).
Logistrap offers several benefits in a single product:
•Cost savings—Logistrap reduces cost in the supply chain by offering a reusable strap for securing goods to a pallet, lowering packaging, recycling, and maintenance costs.
•Sustainability—It reduces waste when replacing single-use alternatives such as shrink wrap, metal banding, and plastic ties.
•Simplicity— Logistrap secures and releases easily and quickly; no tools or equipment are needed.
•Versatility—Available in two different lengths (5 and 7 meters) to best accommodate a particular application.
•Protection—Made with Velcro brand woven nylon hook and loop, Logistrap is soft to the touch and will not damage packaging.
•Label-friendliness— Logistrap does not hide bar codes and other identifying labels; warehouse scanning is uninterrupted.
