Put an end to damage

With the MUST Method, Atlantic Packaging is defining the industry standard for stretch wrapping. Our comprehensive, end-to-end load containment system is designed to prevent damage by certifying your products Fit2Ship.

Protect your product. Protect your brand.

How It Works

What is the MUST Method?

Atlantic’s stretch wrap optimization system applies scientific data and analysis to prevent pallet load failure and put an end to product damage.


Our team performs a full audit of your facility and stretch wrap operation, from the equipment to the materials and operation. This allows us to understand your goals and discover opportunities for process improvement.


We offer the most advanced testing anywhere in the packaging industry, simulating real-world transportation hazards, and testing your packaging until we establish standards that let you ship with confidence.


Atlantic will transform the performance of all of your stretch systems, adding new technology and capabilities that are critical to successfully wrapping each of your loads and improving the productivity of each line.


Our patented MUST Monitoring system collects and reports real-time data to measure the performance of your stretch wrapping lines, providing the insights and analysis our experts need to keep you on track.

At Atlantic, we’re defining the standard in stretch wrapping

Why focus on stretch wrapping?

Improper stretch wrapping is the leading cause of load failure, resulting in a number of issues regarding safety, damage, increased material usage and film costs.

Setting and holding the correct stretch wrapping standards is the key to reducing or eliminating these costly problems.

Atlantic’s MUST Method is a comprehensive load containment system that takes a holistic approach to your stretch wrapping operation to set and hold the correct standards and eliminate load failure.

The Packaging Solution Center

We’ve built a facility in Charlotte, NC to create the most innovative testing resource in the packaging industry.
With our equipment and expert consultants, we can simulate every potential bump and brake along your load’s delivery route.
We can then test films and wrap patterns to set the optimal packaging standard your loads.

The Equipment

Multi-Axis Transportation Simulator

Built by the same engineers who built the vibration testing equipment for NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, this machine can simulate real world transit conditions, allowing us to test and refine your standard in stretch.

Braking and Impact Test Sled

Simulating the effects of acceleration and deceleration on your wrapped loads lets us test, refine, and ensure that your stretch film and wrap pattern are keeping your products safe and secure.

Field Data Recorders

These recorders allow us to collect real-world data on your loads as they travel along a typical delivery route. This data is used to recreate the conditions at our facility and test for the best stretch wrap standard for your specific loads.

Custom Testing

Send your wrapped loads to our Packaging Solution Center in Charlotte and join us as we test them against real-world transportation hazards. Make an Appointment –>

MUST Monitoring

You’ve set the standard for optimal stretch wrap performance. Now you can maintain that standard on every load wrapped. Our patented hardware tracks and records data on every load while our integrated software reports on the performance of your stretch wrapper, alerting you when a load is outside of the benchmark standards.
