myCHEP frees up valuable time to concentrate on core business
Nobody really wants to spend time keeping track of containers. In signing up as a customer, Eurospec Manufacturing has access to this proprietary, online customer portal that streamlines all the administrative tasks associated with container pooling.
Thanks to myCHEP’s calendar function, the company can now plan, view, track and even cancel orders from one central, customized dashboard. A back-office data management function also allows real-time or historical status reports in just one click and the integrated invoice management system even feeds into the company’s accounting processes, flagging any open invoices on the same dashboard.
Not only has myCHEP considerably alleviated the administrative burden on the company, but it has also allowed them greater reactivity, pushing express orders through the portal when needed, and benefiting from its 24/7 access.
Packaging shortages are a thing of the past
Before working with CHEP, a pooling approach to delivery containers was unknown to Eurospec Manufacturing. The company had previously been responsible for anticipating its own stocks of single use cardboard packaging, an approach which did not adapt easily to peaks in demand.
CHEP’s ‘share and reuse’ model is founded on circular economic principles. As a client, Eurospec no longer buys packaging, but rents it, outsourcing at the same time all aspects of its management.
With CHEP’s containers being shared and reused within an unrivalled network of producers, retailers and other receiving locations, transporters and service centers, Eurospec Manufacturing no longer has to worry about running short. Thanks to the scale and density of CHEP’s pooling network, the company now benefits from more flexibility than ever before, even in peak periods.
Better efficiency across the board
The client who initially asked them to move to CHEP pooling solutions is delighted with Eurospec Manufacturing’s choice, but the company has also seen wider benefits to its business.
With a centralized system monitoring all deliveries in real-time and a pool of containers that never runs dry, the company has been able to be even more reactive to their clients’ needs and respond in ever shorter timeframes.
What’s more, as the company is now fully onboarded into the pooled network, Eurospec Manufacturing can simply order the quantity of containers needed, and never be limited by what their customer sends back to them. The durability of CHEP’s containers also provides peace of mind when it comes to the safety of their staff and the transit of their goods. All in all, this has added another level of efficiency to their processes, particularly during a period whereby the global supply chain has undergone more ups and downs than ever before.
