In addition the CHEP Engineering and Innovation Centre teams are continually working on new products and offerings to provide continuous improvement to customers. Reduce product damage A shipping platform should not only deliver products to their destinations, but should also provide maximum protection. CHEP's durable pallets, RPCs and containers enable a reduction in product damage resulting in less waste and a more economic supply chain. Gain operating efficiency Delays in the supply chain cost every business money. The time spent sorting and inspecting white wood or exchange pallets, cleaning up debris from substandard shipping platforms, or worrying about when your next load of pallets will arrive, is time away from your company's core competencies. CHEP removes the inconvenience of pallet and container management, allowing you to run a more streamlined and efficient supply chain. Reduce capital expenditure in the supply chain Customers save time and money with the CHEP pooling solution. They need fewer employees to manage their pallet and container programs. They expend less capital because they no longer need to purchase shipping platforms. They run safer workplace environments because CHEP pallets are more durable.

Use environmentally sustainable products Pooling, the combining and sharing of assets in a common effort, is by definition an environmentally sustainable concept. CHEP has pooled pallets and containers since 1958. CHEP only uses lumber from tree farms, which are a responsible and sustainable source of timber. The pooling model encourages the repair and reuse of pallets and broken or damaged components are recycled rather than sent to landfill. CHEP makes every effort to operate in an environmentally sustainable manner.
