Three Rivers Distributing, LLC.
A few years ago we took a look at how we went to market with our deliveries (mostly rural area) and decided to pull order by account and deliver with a bulk trailer delivery system. The plan was, in doing this, we would put some labor in the warehouse and eliminate some of the need for extra helpers on the trucks. Plus, this would speed up the delivery process in the market.
After doing this for a couple of years, we noticed all the expense of having to purchase shrink wrap, which was coming back on the truck balled up or stuffed between pallets.The plastic ended up in our dumpster and eventually the landfill. We were spending about $15,000 annually on shrink wrap and all we were doing was throwing that money away. It wasn’t but a couple of weeks later that we were at a trade show in Las Vegas and we ran into Rich Sklena and REUSA-WRAPS. This was exactly what we were looking for! After speaking with him at length we decided this was worth looking into.
After we returned, we sat down and figured out how many and what sizes of Wraps we needed. We figured to have a cost saving over the next couple of years of $25,000 -$30,000. There was some trial and error when we first started...but now we are 100% into using REUSA-WRAPS and our drivers and warehouse workers absolutely love them.
I don’t see us ever going back to throwing money away for shrink wrap. If anyone out there is looking for a solution to getting rid of shrink wrap, wants to save money and go green, REUSA-WRAPS reusable pallet wraps are the way to go.

The REUSA-WRAPS reusable pallet wraps have been such a great success for Chef Rubber. We transport freight back and forth between Texas and Nevada. Before we used REUSA-WRAPS, our pallet shipments were increasingly arriving damaged. Freight carriers can be difficult to deal with when it comes to claims as they tend to blame "poor and/or non-compliant" packaging. Since using REUSA-WRAPS reusable pallet wraps, we have only had one shipping incident. The pallet literally fell off the truck when the pallet came apart from shipping LTL transfers. Even so, the REUSA-WRAP held most of the shipment intact. The driver was very impressed and was appreciative of the benefits the wrap offered! We are now requiring our customers to accept our pallet shipments in REUSA-WRAPS and we are including a box for them to return the wrap in.
I can't understand why anyone would not use REUSA-WRAPS reusable pallet wraps, as they are an inexpensive product to purchase and the investment can possibly pay for itself in the first shipment. I strongly support REUSA-WRAPS and I have been informing everyone of their usefulness.
