Asia’s newest service centre open to global food supply

CHEP has reaffirmed its commitment to developing better supply chains to food and logistics industries through an opening of an advanced pallet service in Malaysia.

With an opening ceremony officiated by the Chief Executive Officer of Brambles Limited, Tom Gorman, the event featured supply chain leaders from local and international companies.

“This service centre sets a new benchmark for modern pallet repair facilities in Asia and positions CHEP to better meet the growth demands of our customers in the region, many of whom are household names such as Nestlé, F&N, Coca-Cola, Mondelez and Unilever,” Gorman said.

CHEP supports more than 500,000 customer touch-points for global brands such as Kellogg’s and Nestlé as part of Reusable Plastic Containers (PRCs), which operates a fresh food supply chain globally to the automotive, aerospace, oil and gas sectors.

Consumer goods (such as dry food and groceries) are served in the fast-paced industry that services fresh produce, beverage and manufacturing groups.

A new site has been designed to support an additional 30 per cent increase in future pallet repair volumes and also incorporates CHEP Malaysia’s head office and support functions such as customer service.

Gorman said CHEP’s role in providing supply-chain solutions to help customers transport goods can assist in driving trade and business worldwide, with the quality and efficiency impacting on consumer experience.
