Garden Case Study

Andy Taplin, Head of Supply Chain worked closely with Test Valley Packaging to improve on the pallet wrap that they were using, by reducing costs and plastic usage.

Andy stated that “the wrap that we were using, we didn’t have any problems with, we were more than happy with its performance. The challenges were around price and the amount of plastic we were actually using to get that performance.”

Garden packing advice

The shipping of live plants is one that needs care and consideration given the potential of damage in transit with such delicate cargo. A strong double wall box with inserts can secure multiple small pots and it a quick and effective way of creating stability. By using a coil of Protega paper voidfill, the strength created from the pad acts a secure cushion for large outdoor garden items such as ceramics, locking them in place and reducing any movement.
