A variety of forces may affect your load units during the distribution process.
These may be caused, for example, by acceleration, braking, cornering and uneven road surfaces. But load units are also already exposed during handling to a variety of shipping- and storage-related effects. These may result in serious consequences for your products and the way loads are secured if your goods have not been made safe and stable in the best possible manner. But how can you get your palletized goods safely and – especially even more economically – to their destinations? We'll help you ensure your safety!
Packaging processes that have been coordinated in the best possible manner constitute the basis for your products being economically and safely shipped to your customers without damage. These processes already commence with the choice of suitable transport packaging, continue through the load-appropriate application of your flexible packaging materials and end in the implementation of your specific requirements as well as the legal demands that the method you've used to secure your loads must fulfil.
At our specially developed DUO LAB technology centre, we are able to provide a corresponding forum for analysing and optimizing packaging concepts – not only for forwarders and traders but also for experts, logistics centres, test institutes and so on. DUO LAB stands for ‘Deutsche Technologiezentrum für Ladungs- & Transportgutsicherung’ (‘German Technology Centre for Load and Transport Securing’); it is equipped with the latest technologies to help it carry out scientifically based tests, analyses and optimizations and so ensure the stability of your load units.
The analysis of flexible packaging materials at the specially designed technology centre enables objective and reproducible assessments to be carried out and so allows the fundamental requirements that your packaging must fulfil to be developed. DUO LAB is also able to offer a unique testing technology that allows an analysis of your entire distribution cycle using road, air and sea transport to be carried out within a corresponding testing environment and then optimized on the basis of the results achieved.
The unique combination of many years of experience in the field of film manufacturing and the consistent development of load-securing know-how means that we are able to offer you comprehensive advice that ranges from films to load-securing methods. The concept ensures objectivity and reproducibility and – as a ‘state of the art’ solution – produces significant progress over widely used subjective testing methods.
Be safe and discover our solution for optimizing how your load units can be secured!
It's possible to carry out extensive laboratory testing for the purposes of developing packaging concepts for the securing of load units at our technology centre on your behalf. Entire concepts for securing loads and shipping materials may be tested, analysed and optimized at our testing environments.
The Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle (DAkkS – German Accreditation Body PL-19044) has officially accredited DUO LAB to carry out tests on packaging. This means completely independent working and maximum safety for you.
Our technology centre also provides optimized further training within the scope of special technical seminars.
