CHEP is a service company that provides managed reusable supply chain packaging solutions for customers in the fast moving consumer goods, fresh food, automotive, logistics and general manufacturing sectors. CHEP operates globally in 50 countries.

Sustainability is a priority for CHEP - our business model, based on the shared use of reusable packaging resources, is inherently sustainable.

As the leader in pallet and reusable plastic crates (RPC) pooling solutions, CHEP has a more than a 50-year history of helping customers minimise use of one way packaging and 'reducing, reusing and recycling' resources.

Pooling, the combining and sharing of assets in a common effort, is by definition an environmentally sustainable concept. CHEP has pooled pallets and containers since 1958. CHEP only uses lumber from tree farms which are a responsible and sustainable source of timber. The pooling model encourages the repair and reuse of pallets and broken or damaged components are recycled rather than sent to landfill. CHEP makes every effort to operate in an environmentally sustainable manner.

At the heart of CHEP New Zealand's sustainability approach is a commitment to being a responsible supply chain partner, delivering sustainability value by ‘doing the right thing' for the environment, people, community and our customer.

In the 1990s CHEP invested in speaking with growers and other produce markets to look at alternatives to cardboard cartage, leading to the introduction of Reusable Plastic Crates (RPCs) – a sustainable pooling solution that had a significant impact on the supply chain, replacing cardboard options with various reusable solutions.

Over the past 10 years, CHEP has developed the fixed wall RPCs into a range of foldable RPCs that have many efficiencies around transport optimisation and back or store solutions. CHEP continues to strive for greater supply chain efficiency and sustainability, working to identify potential solutions to replace the use of cardboard in a number of areas. These include meat (protein), eggs and bananas and other streams such as the ambient market.

CHEP understands that it forms part of the supply chain and that whatever it does also affects the sustainability footprint of our customers’ products. CHEP is actively reducing its carbon and waste impacts, prioritises the health and safety of all who deal with its products and supports the communities within which it operates.
