CHEP Australia's 'share and resuse model' was one factor determining its win of the APCO 2020 Logistics & Warehousing Industry Sector Award.

Through its ‘share and reuse model’ CHEP is committed to delivering sustainable supply chain solutions that meet a growing need for circularity in packaging.

Using detailed product-specific life cycle analysis systems, CHEP is committed to understanding and optimising its entire range of packaging.

Having already achieved a product range that is 100 per cent optimised and uses only recycled or renewable materials, CHEP also extends its packaging sustainability commitment by maximising distribution packaging efficiency to reduce total service-associated carbon emissions.

Considering all customers as partners, this transport optimisation programme highlights the power of collaboration, and exemplifies CHEP’s commitment to product stewardship and reducing the environmental impact of packaging through both service and design.
