Reducing damage and reducing costs

The key to handling product damage is finding the root causes — zeroing in on the when, where and why damage happens. Does it happen due to routine movements through your network and supply chain? Is it caused by environmental factors? Or is it automated systems and material-handling equipment? Yours or even your customers’?

Reducing product damage can be done efficiently and cost effectively. CHEP has the knowledge and tools to help you get it done. We have visibility into all segments of the supply chain, an ISTA-certified Innovation Center for testing, value stream mapping tools and an extensive product damage database that will allow us to get to the root causes of your damage.
