CHEP is the invisible backbone of the supply chain, helping to move more goods to more people, in more places, than anyone else on earth. The pooling network (pallets, containers and crates) has 50 times more pallets in circulation in Europe than anyone else, which creates efficiencies of scale for everyone who uses it. CHEP´s visibility of the global end-to-end supply chain gives the company data insights which offer optimisation, innovation and collaboration opportunities, making CHEP a truly strategic partner.

Smarter, more sustainable supply chains

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

"Our vision is to become a leader in driving net positive supply chains through customer collaborations by 2025. By working together with a wide range of partners, Zero Waste World is a global collaboration program creating and delivering Zero Waste Innovations and scalable solutions solving common industry challenges. We have been supporting the IFOY AWARD for over five years and are looking forward to continuing our relationship as official partner throughout 2021 and beyond."
