Commonwealth Handling Equipment Pool

The Australian government develops the Allied Materials Handling Standing Committee to provide efficient handling of defence supplies during World War II.

After World War II, the US Army leaves behind a wealth of materials handling equipment at their military bases in Australia. The Australian government combines this asset base with existing infrastructure to form the Commonwealth Handling Equipment Pool, or CHEP.
