Poly bags are a type of packaging made of thin plastic used to transport goods. The “poly” in their name comes from the fact that they’re often made from polyethylene (a common form of plastic). They’re a staple for shipping goods around the world due to being lightweight and low cost compared to boxes.
Dollies are load platforms with wheels used to transport materials. They’re available in a variety of sizes and materials, which makes them ideal for transporting many different types of loads.
Casters are wheels that can be attached to the bottom of larger platforms (e.g., dollies) to enable them to be moved.
Skids are load platforms with a top deck but no bottom deck. They’re used for the transportation and storage of materials, and since they don’t have a bottom deck, they’re easier to move around due to less friction. Skids are commonly confused with pallets and the two are often incorrectly used interchangeably. The key difference is that a skid is a load platform with a top deck but no bottom deck, while a pallet has both a top and bottom deck.
Pallets are load platforms with both a top and bottom deck that are primarily used to store and transport materials. They are essential to nearly any warehouse space for shipping or organizing large bundles of products. To secure items on a pallet, it’s recommended to wrap them with stretch wrap. Pallets come in a variety of different configurations, so read carefully to make sure you spec your product correctly.
Stretch wrap (not to be confused with shrink wrap) is a plastic film that secures loads using its high-elasticity. Once stretched around a pallet, the wrap will try to return to its original state, securing the load in the process.
Shrink wrap (not to be confused with stretch wrap) is a plastic film that secures loads by shrinking once heat is applied. It’s great for not only securing a load, but also protecting it from the elements.
