Cardiff (PRWEB UK) 2 December 2013
Up to 800 per cent more cardboard waste will be managed within retail outlets this Christmas, according to PHS Wastekit.
Increased levels of packaging means warehouse and ‘back area’ operations become more congested at Christmas creating logistical challenges for warehouse and stock room staff.
Martin Hewitt, commercial director of PHS Wastekit, which supplies baling machines used by retailers to compress cardboard before it is sent off for recycling, said:
“Space is at a premium at this time of year and retailers need to optimise their back area and their stock room spaces by implementing an efficient baling process. As part of our ‘Jingle Bales’ campaign we’re helping our customers develop efficient strategies on stock room cardboard flow and emergency maintenance processes, as well as educating them on health and safety issues surrounding the baling process.
“While stock flies off the shelf in a festive frenzy it can be tricky to keep order of the back areas at retail outlets. Those who don’t take proactive action will quickly become swamped, leading to chaos, lost sales opportunities and health and safety risks.
“If baling policies are not reviewed at Christmas it can spell chaos for retailers, especially the multiples where the sheer volume of cardboard packaging can be a real logistical and health and safety headache.”
