At TrakRap, our whole ethos is to use less of everything, because we know that it’s good for the environment and good for reducing the cost of packaging for you. We can do this because of our investment in ‘cold wrap’ technology. Not only does our packaging system mean we use less film and energy than any other comparative system, but there is no heat involved so we can also reduce the amount of corrugate used compared to the traditional methods of packing, particularly with chilled and frozen products. We want to work with you to make it as easy as possible for you to reap these benefits quickly.
We have done this by developing a ‘pay as you use it’ system that we call ‘pay-per wrap’. This treats the machine as a variable cost which is recovered in the cost of each pack, meaning that there is no Capex required. Instead, we guarantee that each pack is cheaper than you currently pay, whether you’re converting from cardboard boxes or from shrink wrapped packs. Of course, we continue to own the machine, but we also take responsibility for its performance whether it’s up time, call out response, training or servicing. This leaves you to focus on the outputs rather than having to worry about the inputs.
A key part of our ‘servitisation’ system is that we bring all our experience to bear by providing a free consultancy service up front to identify your current cost per pack. We will then make you an offer that gives you a lower cost per pack and, even more importantly, we will underwrite the gross savings, giving you the confidence to write the numbers into your business plan in the all important ‘cost reduction’ section.
Why this approach?
End of line packaging is a necessity to get primary products from the manufacturer to the major retailers! It needs to be fit for purpose, whether it’s transit or shelf ready, it has to protect the primary product in transit and it has to meet changing environmental and sustainability standards.Once you have all these things it simply has to be the lowest cost. TrakRap ticks all these boxes, plus we want to make it as easy as possible for you to get the benefits of our equipment so we can fight climate change together.
We understand that there are many competing projects for Capex and we firmly believe you should be spending it on things that truly differentiate you from your competitors such as new product development, product quality, product manufacturing and primary packaging / filling. Our ‘pay-per-wrap’ system requires no Capex, so you can do both.
Invest in your primary products and at the same time, deliver cost reduction in your secondary packaging. We’ll even support you with installation, training and maintenance, it’s all in the price per pack!
Our machine is powered by the very latest Siemens control systems and we, in turn, are powered by Siemens Financial Services (SFS) as our funding partner. Typically, contracts last for 5 years, but there is scope to tailor our offer to your particular needs because we want you to unlock very significant savings in your business not only in secondary packaging material costs, but also in areas such as pallet handling and storage, line speeds and changeover times.
