  • Steps for New Suppliers

    Our supplier diversity team along with our internal buying community and supporting departments is working to outline ongoing sourcing opportunities. The supplier diversity team will reach out to qualified diverse suppliers when these opportunities present themselves. In the interim we recommend that you address the following questions to provide us with your value proposition for doing business with CHEP in order to be considered as a potential CHEP supplier.

    1. Validate your certification status as a Minority-owned Business or Woman-owned Business.
    2. Complete the CHEP Supplier Diversity Vendor Registration Form
    3. Submit form via email or fax to the CHEP Supplier Diversity Program team

    Your value proposition should include the following:

    • How would your company add value to CHEP?
    • What is your core business?
    • What segment of our business do you see as your best fit?
    • Generally describe what innovation your company can propose to compliment our current products and/or services.

    Please note that suppliers are chosen in the competitive marketplace. Submitting your supplier application and value proposition does not automatically place your company on a "bidder's list," nor does it constitute approval of your firm as a CHEP supplier or obligate CHEP to solicit request for quotations.
