Smarter, more sustainable supply chains

CHEP’s business model is inherently sustainable. By using our pooled assets and sustainability solutions, our customers’ supply chains become more efficient in terms of cost and use of natural resources. We help customers become part of the circular economy through our principles of share and reuse. The more our customers use our platforms, the greater the efficiencies.

Just finding individual efficiencies is not enough for the challenge that we all face. We need a new collective mindset that starts from the principle of generating zero waste – then working together to see how to make that happen. In 2019, CHEP launched "Zero Waste World" an initiative to bring together many of the world’s major companies in a group effort to address the three main challenges facing our supply chain.

The circular economy

Our share and reuse business model is based on the concept of the circular economy,  an industrial model where waste is seen as a resource and zero pollution is produced.

Collaboration projects

Collaboration projects
One type of Collaboration project we offer is Transport Collaboration, where we ‘close the loop’ to reduce empty miles.

The biggest Sustainability benefits can only be achieved by end-to-end collaboration across the entire supply chain. We work with you, your suppliers, your logistics partners, and others to find opportunities where cooperation can make your business more efficient.
