The industry’s broadest array and greatest supply of sustainable platforms
Reusable Plastic Containers (RPCs)
RPCs are a better platform for protecting and transporting fresh food than cardboard. Their stronger construction, superior ventilation and smooth interior optimises product quality and freshness from harvest to consumption. We have RPCs specifically designed for bananas, protein, fruits, vegetables, and dairy products. They are all interoperable, increase effi ciency and reduce cardboard waste to landfills, which decreases your impact on the environment. RPCs provide the fresh food supply chain the following benefits:
+ 25-50% faster product cooling
+ Better temperature and humidity control
+ Improved load stability
+ Reduced product handling distribution centre to shelf
+ 93% fewer cases damaged
Our plastic foldable bins and shuttle bins protect a wide range of perishable goods—including fruits, vegetables, meats and poultry—and durable goods from the grower/distributor to retail display. They are a durable,
environmentally friendly alternative to cardboard. Sharing and reusing bins eliminates excess inventory due to produce seasonality and off peak demand periods.
With more than 23 points of presence across New Zealand and millions of wooden pallets in our network, we have the consistent quality and supply to get your goods to market at a lower cost to your business. CHEP developed and continues to drive pallet standards that connect parties across the supply chain to maximise efficiency and safety. We are strongly positioned to supply your needs, ensure your operations keep moving, and get your goods to the right place at the right time in the right condition.
Display pallets also help reduce handling costs and are designed to increase sales through improved store merchandising and replenishment. They form the base for other display solutions throughout the store, and are compatible with our RPCs and other containers. Display pallets are constructed from lightweight, impact-resistant polypropylene, and are easily moved by trolley jacks into store aisles and promotional displays, creating instant merchandising and replenishment opportunities.
Merchandising pallets, which include half display pallets and quarter pallets, help reduce handling costs and are designed to increase sales through improved store merchandising and replenishment. They enable more efficient distribution of smaller loads to small store formats, and can be useful for off-location placement in larger stores. In addition, greater stock density acts to improve sales through better on-shelf availability.
Our plastic pallets are easy to clean and are designed to maintain their integrity, providing added security for transporting products at risk of contamination. They are lightweight, durable, sustainable and 100% recyclable.
