October 20, 2015

Las Vegas, NV – October 15th, 2015 – At the recent PACK EXPO trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada, CHEP Pallecon Solutions presented their latest asset tracking technologies. Designed to provide world class asset management across the supply chain, CHEP’s tracking solutions allow companies to improve operational efficiencies and significantly reduce costs.

CHEP-TRAC provides users with the tools and software they need to achieve 24/7 visibility over their assets. With the ability to integrate at all points of the supply chain, the system automates data capture and reduces costly error rates. The solution is compatible with multiple systems such as 2D scanning, RFID and GPS devices. 

CHEP TRAC also works with a wide range hardware including tags, handheld scanners, RFID readers, stationary portals and mobile phones, with the data being uploaded to a secure cloud environment.

CHEP Pallecon Solutions also launched its Containers Mobile Application which provides a host of benefits such as real-time GPS locations of shipments using peer-to-peer technology, quick access and insight into container orders and movements, one-touch for order history, shipping, receiving, quality control, damage notifications, and online ordering. In addition, manufacturers, as well as their suppliers, end users and freight carriers can utilize this application to simplify day-to-day operations. It is available for both Android and iOS operating systems.

“We are delighted with the amount of interest generated by these solutions as many different industries look to acquire comprehensive asset management systems and often have to develop their own -this technology enables companies to access CHEP’s proven world class asset management expertise.”, said Keith Schall, Director of Information Technology for CHEP Containers North America, “People are realizing that item-level asset management systems are the most effective way to manage their assets and ultimately reduce CAPEX.”
