    CHEP helps manufacturers to improve efficiencies of packaged goods transportation, reduce product damage and improve efficiency

  • Reducing packaging driven costs in manufacturing

    We've made it our mission to help manufacturers reduce their total packaging driven costs across these six categories:  

    1. Supply chain logistics costs - Maximise truck and container use, reducing empty miles
    2. Packaging costs - Costs of one-way packaging, and associated waste management, as well as minimising loss and damage to goods
    3. Pallet and container availability - Managing logistics and supply/demand imbalances of getting the right product, in the right condition, at the right place at the right time
    4. Capital and costs tied up in non-core activities - Owning and managing pallet or container operations including the cost and hassle of lost containers
    5. Non-core process - Managing container fleet complexity, supplier compliance, cost visibility and viability of containers for reducing container loss
    6. Plant inefficiencies - Inefficiencies created by non-standard packaging, labor costs associated with re-packaging and one-way packaging waste management

    Pallet and container pooling - cost clarity, the right solution and financial benefits

    Advice on choosing the right equipment and accessories for your individual supply chain needs.

    • Standardised handling platforms allowing for increased transport, handling and storage efficiencies across the supply chain
    • Platforms and accessories that help reduce preventable costs e.g. collapsible containers to reduce the cost of reverse transport legs, engineered systems to ensure high value product isn't wasted
    • Reduced double handling, administrative issues or empty miles from equipment return, by adopting our pooling system to facilitate the inter-company flow of pallets and containers across an entire supply chain network
    • Reduced physical packaging waste by replacing one-way packaging to minimise C02 costs through improved truck use
    • Ongoing support to reduce total packaging driven costs over time
