How can you take complexity and risk out of exporting?

CHEP is a leader in global export and pallet management, moving more goods, to more people - in more places - than anyone else on earth. We have by far the greatest export knowhow, the largest and most efficient international service network, and the widest range of platforms – from standard wooden and plastic pallets to containers and RPCs.

Your export challenges

We know that there are many additional challenges with cross-border flows, especially with white wood exchange: regulatory compliance, greater risk of damage, poor quality return supply, the hidden costs in the exchange process, and the financial and reputational cost of inefficient or disrupted flows.

5 ways CHEP can help with your pallet requirements for export

 

  • CHEP makes exporting simpler and easier

    We give you one managed pallet solution throughout the supply chain, taking out much of the complexity of export logistics. Our global network means that we have people in place to help deal with any problems, wherever they might happen. And your life is much easier when you don’t have to deal with exchange issues.

  • More reliable with over 120 million platforms in circulation across Europe

    Our pallets are built to last 10 times longer, and we maintain and repair them so your goods can be safe and secure even on the longest journeys. And with CHEP’s pooling scale you will always have the supply of pallets you need, whatever the demand.

  • No hidden costs

    White Wood may seem cheaper in terms of upfront cost. However, there are many hidden costs that all add up to make it far less cost-effective overall compared to CHEP. Find out more about the power of pooling.

  • Efficient export solution

    Your export solutions need to be as efficient as possible. But different regulations, standards and export pallet dimensions mean that there can be a risk of additional delays and costs if the right pallets aren’t used. Exports to the US and Canada need to be on Mark 55 pallets to avoid repalletization. CHEP pallets are the most accepted worldwide for automated systems and are accepted by logistics firms all over the world.

  • CHEP takes waste out of every part of your export journey

    Our more efficient circular pallet supply chain gives you measurable CO2 emissions savings, to help your sustainability goals. And our more robust reusable pallets significantly reduce white wood landfill waste. Use our Power of Pooling calculator to identify your potential cost and environmental savings.

What is ISPM 15?

ISPM is the International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures. All wood packaging materials (WPM) moving between the EU and other countries must meet ISPM 15 international standards and are subject to official checks on a risk-targeted basis. CHEP has developed the CHEP PLUS PS (phytosanitary) pallet solution for those customers requiring ISPM 15 compliant pallets for export flows

Which CHEP pallets are ISPM 15 compliant?

ISPM 15 requires WPM to be heated in accordance with a specific time–temperature schedule that achieves a minimum temperature of 56°C for a minimum duration of 30 continuous minutes throughout the entire profile of the wood.

We have developed the CHEP PLUS PS (phytosanitary) pallet solution for those customers requiring ISPM 15 compliant pallets for export flows.

CHEP ensures that all CHEP PLUS PS pallets have been heat treated in accordance to the regulation and are properly marked using our own IPPC marks.

All CHEP sites that heat treat pallets to fulfill the ISPM 15 requirements have been successfully audited by the UK Forestry Commission or other relevant NPPO to ensure full compliance with the standard.

CHEP can provide you with a quality assured ISPM 15 compliant pallet that meets these new standards and will ensure your export products arrive safely to their final destination.

CHEP PLUS PS ISPM 15 compliant pallets are clearly marked to be easily distinguishable as a CHEP heat treated pallet that meets these new import specifications.
