CHEP Pallecon Solutions Recognized as Supply Chain and Technology Innovator

Livonia, MI – January 16th, 2014 – CHEP Pallecon Solutions North America has recently been recognized for its leadership in technology and supply chain innovation by several industry publications. The company’s credits include being named to Food Logistics tenth annual Top 100 Technology Providers list, as well as winning Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine’s 2013 Green Supply Chain Award.

The annual FL100 list highlights software and technology providers that help food and beverage manufacturers, foodservice distributors, and grocery retailers attain their business goals. This marks the 6th consecutive year the container pooling business has been recognized among other prestigious companies for playing a significant role in food and beverage supply chains; however this is their first year winning under the CHEP Pallecon Solutions name since CAPS was rebranded as a division of CHEP in November of 2013.

Enhancements to their CHEP-TRAC container tracking software earned CHEP their spot on the list this year. CHEP-TRAC enables customers to easily access near real-time reports on critical data tracked throughout their supply chain including metrics required for HACCP plans, which has become crucial since food and beverage companies are now required to comply with FSMA standards. New functionality this year exists in CHEP RAPID RFID, which allows manufacturers to eliminate the need to scan barcodes on individual containers. With this technology, data is recorded instantly as containers pass through RFID portals while being unloaded from- or loaded onto trucks.

In addition, CHEP Pallecon Solutions has won the 2013 Green Supply Chain Award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine. This list recognizes companies that are making sustainability a focal point of their business strategies and assisting their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals. At its core, CHEP’s reusable container pooling program is designed to Cut Cost, Mitigate Risk and Eliminate WasteTM in manufacturing supply chains by replacing disposable one-time-use packaging with reusable containers as well as streamlining transportation and logistics to reduce harmful fuel emissions.

CHEP Pallecon Solutions strives to offer the most complete supply chain solutions possible by continually investing in the necessary people, processes and technology year after year. To learn more about the container management programs CHEP offers, visit www.chep.com/containers.
