Transportation Solutions

More resources, better efficiencies

When you rent a pallet from CHEP, you become part of our network, that integrates our transportation resources with the resources of our customers. That way we can provide the necessary means of transport to supply, deliver and collect millions of pallets and make your supply chains more efficient, decreasing total costs and finding the right transportation solutions. Combining or empty lanes with other hauliers or eliminating them, sharing transport, closing open chains and buy in transport. Whatever is needed, together we can optimize your transport.

Dankzij de sterkte en de data die we hebben over leveringsroutes van ons en onze klanten, kunnen we onderzoeken welke er overlappen met uw lanes.

As a customer of CHEP using our pooling system, you become part of our network and you can utilise it. In Europe alone, our network has more than 315,000 delivery points, 240 service centres and 120 million pooled containers and pallets.

Thanks to the strength of the network, the data we have on CHEP flows and the ones of our customers and our tools, we can identify potential efficiencies.

CHEP helps you to set up transport collaborations between customers, or combine trips between CHEP and our customers. This reduces costs, the number of (empty) kilometres and CO2 emissions.

Our Collaborative Transport Solutions

Check out how we can help you cut costs and empty kilometres.

  • Distance

    We identify opportunities to optimize the total distance covered by a truck by connecting full truck loads of our customers to one another or to ours. THis way we improve product flow connections, that results in fewer empty kilometres between the different loading and unloading points. As part of this, we are always looking at whether we can optimise existing collaborations by eliminating constraints such as time slots, or by switching to alternative modes of transport such as trains, boats and Longer Heavier Vehicles.

  • Capacity

    We look for opportunities increase the capacity of trucks by combining partial freights from different parties. This way we increase the load and use the existing transport capacity better.

Jan De Wael Sales Director, Van Dievel Transport

As the main haulier for Coca-Cola, we deliver on a daily basis to Colruyt. After we have unloaded the trucks, we load them again with CHEP-pallets that go to the service centre. That means less empty kilometres, so we can pass on savings to our clients.

For a sustainable future

How we work

Four simple steps to help you optimize your transport by transportation collaborations.

  • Opportunity

    Based on the data we have and by using our unique Lane Matching Tool we do a first high-level analysis. Together we then define the scope of a more detailed analysis, according to your operational needs.
     

  • Analysis

    Based on your input, we prepare a more detailed analysis. During a meeting with you, we identify the opportunities and rank them according to priority. Together we define the first realistic steps towards a collaboration.

  • Implementation

    We map the full supply chain process and identify possible obstacles. Together with all persons concerned, we make a selection for transporters, agree on transport prices and set up an plan for implementation.

  • Reporting

    We make a plan for check-up and follow-up, define the KPI's and launch a pilot. Afterwards we evaluate the KPI's and results. next to that, we explore if the collaboration program can be expanded and suggest a plan for implementation.
