Shipping more for less

A small improvement in how much product you can fit on a pallet can lead to significant cost reductions. You can get these savings — savings that lower labor costs, handling costs, pallet costs and transport costs — often with no operational change.

CHEP makes Unit Load Optimization simple. Our process is customized, efficient and cost-effective — especially when you consider that many companies experience an ROI of up to 400% from this initiative. That’s what can happen when unit loads are optimized every day, for every load.

Only CHEP combines the expertise of our experienced engineers, state-of-the-art software and access to testing at CHEP’s ISTA certified Innovation Center.
