Platform Delivery
and Collection

This is the Supply Change.™

Your logistics optimised with ours.

 

The opportunity

What if you could make your supply chain more proactive? What if it anticipated your needs, and met them in ways that allowed you to devote your time and energies elsewhere? And what if you could leverage logistics data in ways that improved your efficiency, optimised your lanes and reduced your costs? In ways that better conserved resources and minimised the impact of the supply chain on the environment?

That’s the idea behind CHEP’s Transportation Solutions. Our Platform Delivery and Collection solutions, as well as our Collaborative Logistics solutions, are designed to leverage synergies between your opportunities and our extensive resources. We function like a part of your business, helping as you seek to optimise your own resources and meet your own transport needs. Deliveries and collection of platforms become more efficient and cost-effective.

Filling your empty lanes adds further efficiencies and helps make better use of trucks already on the road. Our logistics resources can help you optimise yours.

What we do

Service is at the heart of our Transportation Solutions.

Our extensive network of customers, facilities and lanes, combined with the real-time data analysis of our Logistics Control Centre, allows us to transport platforms efficiently and sustainably. In some instances, we can also help you as you seek to optimise lanes by offering opportunities to transport our platforms using your trucks and those of your carriers.

Platform Collection and Delivery 
CHEP has trucks on the road already that were specifically designed for collecting and delivering large quantities of platforms, so you don’t have to invest your resources to clear your yards and storage areas. Coordinated by our Logistics Control Centre, our trucks follow carefully designed routes that service multiple customers to optimise the use of fuel and capacity and minimise costs. Often our drivers can load their trucks themselves, which reduces demands on your labour.

We’ll also keep you updated on the expected arrival times of our trucks, which helps you facilitate planning.

If you want to connect to our systems via EDI, we can anticipate when you’ll need our collection services and schedule a pick-up at your convenience. Otherwise, you can use our myCHEP customer portal to place all of your order and collection needs.

Collaborative Logistics 
Where there are synergies that make sense, we can turn your empty lanes into closed loops by matching your lanes with ours. Your underutilised trucks can help us balance our asset pools. Together, we could potentially eliminate costs and CO2 emissions through more efficient use of our networks.

Due to the size and scale of our business, we have the logistics expertise, data, collaborative partnerships, trucks, lanes, facilities and destination points to potentially lower your transportation costs.

We analyse rich data in real time to proactively optimise the collection and delivery of platforms.
