LLDPE - CATCH A FALLING KNIFE ‘’Although prices are falling, cheaper resin will be offered, processors still need material to run and the lead time for delivery requires ongoing purchases.’’
HYPERACTIVE LLDPE "resin markets continued their
streak of hyperactivity; the flow of fresh railcars
has been rapid and falling prices are encouraging
processors to procure material.
RESIN DECLINES ‘’PE contracts decreased $.03/lb in Nov and should see a decline of $.04-.05/lb this month; barring an unforeseen event, they will likely find further pressure in the first quarter."
BUY WISELY "While processors are clearly enjoying the cheaper resin prices, they are still wisely buying material as needed and to assure the continuity of supply during the sometimes challenging last week of Dec and first couple weeks of the New Year."
PRUDENT - Working with falling prices - Western Plastics message to distribution. Buy film only as needed for immediate shipping/billing (think drop ships).
COSTS FALLING "The major energy markets continued to collapse in historic fashion." "Ethylene prices continued to unravel;"
PE BUSIER "The Polyethylene market remained very busy;"
EROSION "The dramatic erosion in the prices of energy and feedstocks are also rushing downstream to resins"
PRICE CHANGE "Polyethylene and Polypropylene markets are in the midst of a significant price adjustment."
ASK A LOADED QUESTION "So what is the current price for stretch? That is always a loaded question, bring a firm purchase order and we will talk."
LONGER TERM PE FORECAST "at the moment, there seems to be little risk of higher prices come January."
Watch this space
1. The tool was really easy to use.
2. The stretch wrap held better than the current shrink wrap we are using
3. The associates like the fact that they could walk forward instead of walking backwards which is a great safety feature.
4. The pallets were wrapped quicker due to the shrink wrap being pre-stretched so they don't lose the width of wrap
5. The associates were able to wrap taller pallets because of the tool
6. Associates did not have to bend over as much
7. Some associates were using too much wrap because they were used to using the current wrap.
Overall they like the new wrap as long as the tools are available. We had some associates that ended up using the wrap without the tool because we ran low on wrap for awhile. They said they did not like it because it would rip easier and couldn't wrap as tight. I then explained why those issues were happening and let them test it with the tool. After they tested it with the tool I got the same feedback as above.
