AGCO International, the manufacturer of agricultural equipment, has signed a two-year contract with CHEP, for pooled container management.
Under the contract, CHEP will provide packaging and services for the flows of inbound components from AGCO suppliers in 16 European countries that ship to five AGCO manufacturing facilities in Germany, Finland, and France.
CHEP will provide a managed pool of standard reusable containers and use its technology to manage AGCO’s own pool of specialised containers. CHEP’s support operations will be based from 12 European container service centres.
The partnership will also explore opportunities to standardise AGCO’s packaging across its European and worldwide supply chain.
