New CHEP pallet hits Germany

CHEP has launched a new plastic quarter pallet in Germany, with rollout across the rest of Europe and the UK planned for the future.

The P0604B was developed over the last 18 months in the CHEP Innovation Centre in Orlando, Florida, using internal and external expertise and partnerships with key users.

CHEP had conducted workshops with manufacturers, retailers and Logistics Service Providers in seven countries in Europe including the UK to identify inefficiencies in the last mile of the supply chain.

Christophe Campe, vice president and country general manager for CHEP’s Pallets operations in Germany, said:  “We as CHEP, having 20+ years of market experience, continuously strive to improve customer satisfaction through delivery and collection performance as well as aiming to achieve a consistent cost to serve. Germany is a strategically important market, not just to CHEP but to the European-wide supply chain”.
