Case Study: Inbound Global Supply Chain

Inbound Global Supply Chain partnership between CHEP and one of the Leading OEMs is in place.

An efficient and cost-effective supply chain is a competitive advantage. By outsourcing the complete packaging management process and sharing standardised reusable packaging within CHEP’s global equipment network, companies with global supply chains save time, money and the hassle of managing one-way packaging or their own pool of containers. 

CHEP partnered with a leading OEM on intercontinental shipments and owns a fleet of standardized robust reusable packaging designed to optimise sea freight shipment.

Share and Reuse

Through the economies of scale achieved by utilising CHEP’s global network of service centres, packaging is made available at the origin (suppliers) and then collected at the destination (OEMs). Owing to CHEP’s unique circular economy business model (Share and reuse), the assets are used across different industries and supply chains to offer a superior alternative to one way packaging. 

These intercontinental shipments are part of the client’s daily inbound material flows. There is a large amount of risk associated with global part flows – not only is their high in-transit value tied up in a pipeline which is difficult to have visibility of – but the risk of damage upon arrival, owing to poor packaging, is ever present. The cost of rework and potential airfreight contingencies can sorely affect the assembly plans and deeply impact the bottom line. CHEP not only takes on the risk of owning the assets, but also manages them via its proven asset control systems worldwide. This gives the CHEP customer peace of mind to focus on what they do best, which is to build cars!
