Polypack's latest shrink package and patent pending product collation is sure to revolutionize the beverage industry!

This amounts to tremendous savings! These new Staggered Packs allow for increased product quantity for a given footprint, and also offer unique and innovative marketing possibilities and package design potential.
Polypack's innovative approach to finding effective packaging solutions have resulted in yet another groundbreaking pack configuration that can save you money. Polypack is pleased to introduce Nested Packs®!
What are Nested Packs®?
Round products have a tendency to shift and nest during the shrink wrapping process, as well as when the pack is handled by the bullseyes.
Traditionally, trays or pads have been used to keep the rows in a straight line. Using Polypack's patented system to intentionally nest the round products into a predetermined geometric shape, Polypack has created an extremely strong, super dense pack that can completely eliminate the need for trays or pads. This amounts to HUGE Savings in material costs and also offers unique package shapes with endless marketing possibilities.
Nested Packs of 18 cans/bottles and higher fit into the same or smaller size as traditional bundles in trays. Nesting allows for an increased product quantity with the same footprint as traditional bundles. Palletizing efficiency is the same or better. The Nested Pack withstands rough handling during distribution, improves space consumption on the shelves, and the unique eye-catching look heightens the product's shelf appeal.

The Nested Pack fills the voids in traditional packs, which provides more points of contact for the individual bottles. Rather than the traditional 4 points of contact in a square pattern, Nested Packs use triangular geometry and obtain 6 points of contact. It's no secret that triangular support is superior, in fact we see it all around us:
