Product damage happens.
The key to handling it 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’?
Product damage costs manufacturers like you over $2 billion every year—that’s more than $5 million a day. More than that, product damage can hurt your reputation. Your profitability. It can even mean the difference between being in the black and being in the red.
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.
Product damage happens. But when you find the root causes, it can be reduced or eliminated.
