Innovation and development
Our team of cargo protection experts visited the customer and worked with the customer to find an innovative solution to the problem. This led to the development of two new solutions:
SuperGrip: a surface treatment is applied to the Dunnage Bags to increase surface friction and prevent movement
EasyFix: positioning stickers to allow the precise positioning of bags before loading and inflation
As with any new technology, there were difficulties to overcome. Initial SuperGrip samples proved too sticky and attracted too many insects and mosquitos. We changed the composition to create a solution which gripped but wasn’t sticky.
One of the additional benefits that was realized with the creation of EasyFix was the ability to prepare the cargo before it gets loaded into the container, optimizing load times and reducing pressure on the operative.
