​Management

This is the
Supply Change.TM

Managing your core business, not your shipping platforms.

The opportunity

Imagine if you could really focus on your core business. On managing it, rather than managing your shipping platforms and recyclables.

Imagine if you could really focus.

Focus on where your labor is best used. Focus on the efficient distribution of goods. Focus on deploying your assets where they bring you the most value. Focus is what our Platform Management solution can bring to your operation.

We'll handle the backend of your supply chain, so you can focus on more important things. Getting your product to stores and customers at the lowest possible cost. Creating a work environment with less risk and less clutter. Maximizing the value of pallets, platforms, recyclables and more.

That's what CHEP will focus on, making your supply chain more efficient.

We have the skills and the scale to be a single, trusted resource capable of managing every piece of the puzzle across your network. We provide on-site and off-site management, network-wide inventory planning, financial reporting and data services as well as a credit for any recycled pallets you don't need.

We free you and your assets - your people, your space, your transportation, your equipment and your capital - so they can do you the most good.

We handle your platforms and recyclables. We do it all.

So you can focus.

What we do

Platform management is what we do and what we've done for scores of major businesses for over two decades. We'll provide the basic labor functions of handling pallets freed from load. We'll handle unloading and sorting recyclables, pallets and other platforms.

We'll sort, track, report, manage and remove all platforms you no longer need. We'll return platforms to your network, maintain the inventory you'll need and reduce your platform procurement costs. If you don't need pallets, we'll remove them, purchase them or return them to other suppliers. And every platform, activity and transfer we manage is tracked, reported and accounted for.

 

Not only do we have the corporate discipline, national scale and years of experience you need, our management of your assets can also increase your operating margins by creating labor efficiencies. We can provide platform management on-site at your distribution centers or off-site at our nearby facilities, depending on what works best for you.

We do it simply. We do it affordably. We do it for you.
