Both Yellow Jacket Orbital Stretch Wrapper options significantly minimize the time it takes to wrap a load by hand. Typically it takes 2 workers about10 minutes to wrap a similar load by hand. Yellow Jacket can wrap a similar load with 1 worker in 1 minute. In addition to reducing the labor required to wrap by at least 50%, Yellow Jacket also eliminates the need for other strapping materials or expensive cartons to secure loads. Yellow Jacket’s customers have reported anywhere from $20,000-50,000 dollars saved annually in labor costs alone. Factor in the increase in product integrity, reduction in material use and other hidden costs, and the savings only increase. Tightly wrapped to the pallet, the load’s ability to shift, fall or slide in transit is nearly impossible.
