CHEP announces efficiency improvements and cost savings with LeanLogistics Transportation Management System

CHEP announces efficiency improvements and cost savings with LeanLogistics Transportation Management System

LeanLogistics, international provider of transportation management systems has announced that CHEP Europe has made savings in transportation management as well as efficiency improvements as a result of implementing LeanTMS from LeanLogistics.

A new case study is available to download on leanlogistics.com providing more details.

CHEP is a leader in managed, returnable and reusable packing solutions, serving many of the world’s largest companies. The company wished to reduce transportation costs through routing guide compliances and improve transport capacity detection and cost on certain lanes through spot market purchasing.

“CHEP is benefitting from efficiency gains and transport savings that are serving our entire organisation,” said Enrique Garcia, SVP Supply Chain Europe, CHEP. “The visibility and collaborative environment of LeanTMS allows us to set sustainable business practices in place by measuring and reducing empty kilometres as well as reporting on carbon emissions.”

Within the EU, delayed carrier settlement was creating issues with service providers who used many different ways to communicate. Additionally, staff had to manually confirm deliveries and set appointments. As a result of implementing LeanTMS, this process has significantly improved. There is now a documented history trail and telephone and fax communication have been eliminated.

“The entire CHEP European transport purchasing team now has access to all aspects of the transportation process across countries,” said Ian Broadhurst, General Manager for LeanLogistics in Europe. “European carriers can now be managed as a whole rather than by individual country.”

Some other benefits that CHEP received as a result of the implementation is that the transportation process has been standardised across all countries. Additionally, the automated tendering process (straight tender from order creation) improved lead times and resulted in better carrier acceptance.
