Alpha's PERFect-Pack system envelopes single
layers of bottles in a perforated plastic bag for convenient
and economical shipping. Unfilled bottles are automatically
inserted into customized, perforated plastic bags, and the bags are sealed, labeled
and stacked to a pallet height specified by the customer. Customers may buy as
little as one pallet of select container sizes in PERFect-Pack bags.
When the bottles reach your plant, workers strip off the
outer shrinkwrap, pull each layer of bottles off the stack,
and simply "unzip" each bag of bottles at the perforation.
Saves space: By eliminating "head space" wasted in
corrugated shipper boxes, you can pack more product in every
truckload and warehouse.
Improves ergonomics: Floor personnel can handle each layer of bottles separately
instead of handling the entire contents of a 30-pound shipper carton at one time.
Reduces trash: Eliminate the cost, waste and dust of corrugated cartons.
Improves stacking: Stacked pallets are stronger and sturdier with PERFect-Packs.
How much could you save?
Alpha is currently using the PERFect-Pack system for dozens of sizes
of bottles in each of our plants. Space
savings vary by bottle size and pallet height, but they can really add
As one example, this customer packaged 250cc packers in
a pallet four cartons high to stand 101.5 inches tall. That height yielded
7,524 bottles in the PERFect-Pack stack on the left; the pallet of corrugated
cartons on the right held only 5,400 packers - or 2,124 fewer bottles.
In the end, PERFect-Pack put 39% more product on each truckload!
