CASE STUDY - Subject: Litewrapper pallet wrap system
We are a logistics world company and we want to receive information about your dispenser of film Litewrapper model DP212
Please, could you send us a complete information about the product, price, term of supply, etc?.
Best Regards.

Dear Vincente,

Thank you very much for your inquiry and interest in our Litewrapper system.

The key benefits of the systems are:

* You can wrap a pallet in less than one minute
* You walk forward, so you see where you walk (safe) and you only need one hand
* you do not need to bend, so no more back injuries or dizzy operators.
* compared to conventional 23 micron film the film reduction will be 70% in Weight
* the tension on the pallets is regulated by the dispenser, not by the operator. So no matter who or when the pallet is wrapped, the quality of wrapping is constant
* stronger film, no "neck-down" of the film (film will not become more narrow while wrapping) makes it possible to wrap your pallets BETTER with LESS turn around the pallets.
* more pallets wrapped with 1 roll of film

Could you inform me about the quantity of pallets you wrap by hand in your operation?
Then we can offer you a solution, that will offer you time and money savings. And you will reduce waist (waste surely?) also!

Best regards,

EZ Bander

Wal-Mart chief pledges higher prices for sustainable suppliers
The chief executive of the world's biggest retailer yesterday promised to favor suppliers providing high quality and ethically sourced products.

Wal-Mart will launch a major retail-industry effort to improve social, ethical and environmental standards in the factories of its suppliers, CEO and president Lee Scott told a meeting of store managers.

"The drive will see the retailer favor - and in some cases even pay more - for suppliers that meet our standards and share our commitment to quality and sustainability".

"Paying more in the short term for quality will mean paying less in the long term as a company. Higher quality products will mean better value, fewer problems, fewer returns and greater trust with our customers," Scott told the audience.

But the firm will also raise the bar for suppliers on sustainable sourcing, putting pressure on them to provide evidence that they are meeting ethical and quality criteria.

I'd like to talk a little bit about our operations also. We've also put in quite a bit or are in the process of adding capacity in some of our businesses. In stretch film, by the end of February, we will be making a product called Pre-stretch, it's a specialty film, it completes our product line. It's the only product that we're missing in that marketplace.

Walmart Sustainability Packaging Expo: zero tolerance for greenwash

Preparing to exhibit for the fifth consecutive year at Walmart's annual Sustainability Packaging Expo, packaging suppliers have become increasingly savvy in conveying their green messages.

That's according to Robert Parvis, Sam's Club manager of House Brands Packaging, who spoke with, along with Ronald Sasine, senior director of Packaging, Private Brands for Walmart Stores, about the retailer's upcoming event, scheduled for April 6-7 at the John Q. Hammons Convention Center, in Bentonville, AR.

"Their message is becoming more and more focused," Parvis says. "One of the things we are really pushing is clear communication, especially around anything related to sustainability claims."

Sasine agrees, "The packaging suppliers are learning the language of Walmart, and they are learning to engage and discuss packaging with Walmart buyers and merchants in a way that, in those early years, was much more difficult for them."
