PANOZZO PROTECTIVE NETS: PROTECTION AS ADDED VALUE
The life cycle of a product is a very topical subject, especially because of the environmental issue. Less is said about the life cost of the product, which is deduced from the time, the specificity of the project, the difficulty of implementation and the scope of use. However, there is a tendency not to take into consideration a delicate and essential phase: transport. Transport founds itself between the production phase of the article and its insertion in the environment of use and often its risks are underestimated; it is in fact the less controlled step and for this reason more subject to cause permanent damages, that increase considerably the cost of the goods in question. At this point, the question that arises spontaneously is: how much do the damages due to inefficient and superficial transport weigh on the company budget? And again: how much could the evaluation of the life cost of a product change if such damages were to be reduced to zero?
