Let The Games Begin

One Pack's own, Fred Gerstler, has been part of the Material Handling Society New Jersey since 1990.


MHSNJ is a non profit organization that educates those within our industry with local NJ tours and relevant, industry speakers.  


Staying relevant and interesting, regardless of what you do, is probably the largest challenge we all face and that's no different for MHSNJ.  The LogistX Games definitely fills that bill.


Imagine taking an empty warehouse and filling it with competitions that only a material handling person can appreciate.


Have you ever wanted to pack a bottle of wine and throw it as hard as you can, hoping it does not break? LogistiX Games.


How about a race that consists of navigating a loaded pallet jack around strategically placed cones throughout the building. Sounds fun right?  LogistX Games.


How about packing cartons and placing them in their proper rack location while being timed with a stop watch.  OK, that one may not be fun if it's during work hours, but doing it against seven other teams, that sounds like a hoot.  Yup, LogistX Games.


We invite you to part of the fun as a spectator and maybe next year, you bring your team to compete.

Nelson Wrapper
Still One of The Best Ideas, Ever
  And Now They Have a Great New Video


There are few things in our industry that work as well as a Nelson Wrapper.
This simplistic idea really took off because it was a solution to so many challenges.
If you're tired of seeing your employees (or even you) walk backwards while wrapping loads and if you're tired of bending over, or reaching high to ensure the loads are wrapped correctly, then you will love the Nelson Wrapper.

Sorry, The Video Won't Be Available
Until Next Month
It's Catchy and Just Plain Fun

Transporting Wine?
Give Wine Skin A Try
 More and more people are transporting wine when visiting and Wine Skin is leading the way of getting that precious bottle from point A to Point B in one piece.
Unlike a paper bag the Wine Skin seals the bottle in tough plastic and bubble wrap.  
Going on a long trip? The double face tape reduces leakage when packing the wine in suitcases or carry bags.
It's a great idea at a great price.  Click on the photo above or the link below to order yours.
