Strapping is another simple technique used to protect your products during transit. Strapping is applied once your boxes have been grouped into a bundle. A protective outer cover sheet is fitted with a large strap. This secures the boxes and protects your products while they’re out for delivery.
For larger orders, your products will be palletised into a shroud, which is a large, heavy piece of board that surrounds the pallet. This keeps the boxes secure and protected when in transit. Finally, cling film wrap will be applied around the shroud and labelled as an extra precaution.
For more temperamental jobs, the previous process will be identical with one exception: your boxes will be placed in outer packaging before being placed onto the pallets and wrapped within the shroud.
Euro and standard pallets
For reference, standard pallets are typically 1016mm x 1219mm x 144mm and are commonly used for domestic deliveries.
When stacking your order, we ask you to specify the height you want the boxes to stacked. We understand that the shelving and racks you use may be limited in size. Standard stacking heights range between 800cm-1100cm. Therefore, where possible, we aim to stack your products in a way that’s convenient for you to receive your products.
This is a great solution for businesses that want high-end boxes but lack the time or resources to generate new designs. This allows you to focus on your customers, while we handle the packaging. In this case, your products will be securely returned in a pallet shroud, and in many cases, put into boxes of 6 and 8 for added protection.
Our deliveries vary, depending on the order quantity and delivery location. For local deliveries, we aim to be there personally. For larger orders, long-distance and overseas destinations, we work closely with a number of logistics companies to deliver your order.
Distribution is a core part of our business. We take pride and care in packaging client’s orders. No effort is spared to ensure orders are delivered in the same condition that they left our factories in. At the Prest Group, we understand the importance of time management for your business. We work closely with our clients to establish a timeframe for their deliveries and work hard to meet this target.
At the Prest Group, sustainability is key to our operations. Accordingly, we try to minimize the number of outer boxes we use in order to reduce waste.
Here at the Prest Group, we facilitate a broad range of deliveries throughout the UK and Europe. Whether you’re ordering large printed boxes or smaller luxury boxes, we aim to have your order with you as soon as it’s manufactured.
Organisation is essential. We label all of our outgoing packagings and sort them by region to avoid any confusion for our delivery partners.
High-end printed packaging gets the care and protection it deserves here at the Prest Group. We understand that packaging plays a crucial role in your branding process and must stand out to attract consumers to choose your product when it’s on the shelf. Many orders are done by hand. We find this avoids marking and scratching so they’re individually packaged by our team.
The first order is always a little more time consuming, particularly with larger orders., Once we’ve been through the process, all future orders have a faster turnaround time.
