Why Invest

Feeling overwhelmed by rising costs, sluggish operations, and growing environmental concerns? Picture this: a smooth-running warehouse, efficient logistics, and a lighter impact on the planet. Sounds too good to be true? It's not! Two simple solutions hold the key to this supply chain dream: pallets and reusable plastic crates (RPCs). These unsung heroes are key to achieving cost-effectiveness, sustainability, and streamlining operations with great effect. CHEP has an unrivaled range of pallets and RPCs available for the FMCG supply chain.

The Power of a Simple Platform

Pallets are the workhorses of effective material handling. They offer a uniform foundation for moving and stacking FMCG products, making forklift operation possible, and facilitating efficient movement along the supply chain. This seemingly straightforward invention decreases product damage, lowers personnel expenses, and speeds up logistics by doing away with the need for human handling.

  • The Benefits of Reusable Plastic Crates

RPCs are rapidly gaining traction in the fresh produce supply chain. These robust crates offer several advantages: they're lighter, reducing transportation costs and fuel consumption. They're also more hygienic, easier to clean, resist moisture and pests, thus ensuring product integrity in diverse environments. Moreover, their durability allows for countless reuse cycles and less cardboard waste, resulting in a positive environmental impact.

  • Versatility Across Industries

From agriculture and retail to manufacturing and pharmaceuticals, pallets and reusable plastic crates cater to diverse industry needs with standardised designs and specifications. Whether it's safeguarding delicate fresh produce during transit or reducing the amount of cardboard waste to landfill, these versatile solutions offer unparalleled reliability and adaptability in any operational setting.

  • Enhanced Product Protection

RPCs and pallets offer ease of handling, reduced worker fatigue and potential injuries, superior protection against damage and reduced returns.
