In the e-commerce marketplace, Great Northern Rollguard is on a mission to help customers WIN. With that commitment, we are pleased to announce the addition of a new ISTA® 6 Testing Laboratory to Great Northern’s Appleton, WI packaging facility.
Safety concerns surfaced at TIDI when moving the rolls of film. The cradles holding the rolls had begun to wear down, so there wasn’t enough room to fit hoist straps around the rolls to move them safely to converting machines. Frustrated with the situation, TIDI searched for a better solution and found Great Northern Rollguard’s Dura-Last™ roll cradles.
Great Northern is now a member of a select group of companies that are part of the Amazon Packaging Support and Supplier Network (APASS). APASS officially recognizes packaging experts who can provide corrugate and other 100% recyclable packaging solutions, such as Rollguard’s custom molded pulp protective interior packaging, to help e-commerce vendors with their shipping challenges.
In addition to supplying reliable packaging, Great Northern provides structural design and package testing to comply with Amazon standards. Our ISTA 6-certified lab will be available the end of 4th quarter 2019.
Many products have an irregular shape and can be difficult to protect and package. Rollguard’s Molded Pulp Custom Packaging solution reduces labor and production time. Learn how Lamplight Farms benefited from this Rollguard solution.
Safe, Easy to Use Perforated Cradle Option Available
Rollguard’s Perforated Fibre Cradle allows for safe, manual unloading of rolls 40 to 50 inches in diameter (101.6 cm to 127 cm). Made from fully-recyclable corrugated fiber pulp, perforated saddle edges allow kick-down of one or both sides for manual movement of roll onto pallet or forklift, eliminating the need for overhead cranes or slings.
Dura-Last™ Reusable Cradles offer customizable long-life protection for pallet material of any size or shape. Made from high-density, durable foam material Dura-Last™ offers long-lasting cradle usage and less waste. Its textured surface resists beading and prevents slippage. In addition, its lightweight material reduces shipping costs without compromising protection.
Ideal for internal roll handling during WIP, Dura-Last™ is great for low quantity orders, and there is no minimum required or tooling fees.
