Selecting an Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) solution requires careful consideration to ensure you partner with a provider that will enable you to optimise your supply chain, reduce your overall packaging costs, and improve your environmental footprint, while enabling you to spend more time focused on your core business.

CHEP Pallecon Solutions, a full-service IBC rental company provides all of that through its comprehensive container rental program that includes container hire, liner supply, asset cleaning and repair, container delivery and collection throughout Europe and the Middle East, and off-site storage. Through this one-stop shop solution, customers have total control and volume flexibility to rent only the containers they need, when they are needed to support seasonal and ongoing production requirements.

Continuous Innovation

CHEP Pallecon Solutions is constantly talking to its current and future customers to determine what their primary challenges are so we can develop innovative products and solutions to meet customer needs.  Available this Autumn, the company’s newest container, the innovative Pallecon iCONIC, incorporates many of the key features requested by customers.  Based on a 1200×1000 pallet, it has a market leading 3.5:1 fold ratio, reinforced anti-slip base, capability for single operator setup with non-sequential folding and a sliding lid, and a liner with 33% improved flow rate using the Maxi-Valve.

Food & Beverage Customer Success

Since 1982, CHEP Pallecon Solutions has served the food ingredients, beverage, fruit, and personal care industries throughout Europe, helping customers to implement IBC solutions that improve supply chain efficiency and reduce overall costs.

After the primary fruit concentrate producer in Murcia Spain switched from 220 litre drums to CHEP Pallecon’s Fruitflow container as part of a full-service solution, the customer was able to significantly improve their supply chain efficiency and maximize their beverage factory capacity. The fruit concentrate producer was looking for a packaging supplier that could be flexible, react quickly, and had large volume capacity to help manage packaging for its citrus fruit crops.  In response to these requirements, the customer began a partnership with CHEP Pallecon Solutions in 2012, and has continued to increase its usage volume over the past three years. Since implementing the full-service container rental and management program, the customer has improved storage capacity by 20% and handling by 25%, and now has the capability to fill a larger volume of product on the same aseptic filling lines.

By partnering with CHEP Pallecon Solutions, customers can put 32 years of packaging and supply chain experience to work for them and leverage our market expertise to ultimately cut costs, eliminate waste and mitigate risk.

CHEP Pallecon Solutions is part of Brambles Limited, a supply-chain logistics company operating in more than 50 countries, primarily through the CHEP and IFCO brands. The Group specialises in the provision of pooling solutions and associated services, focusing on the outsourced management of approximately 450 million returnable and reusable pallets, crates and containers through a network of more than 850 service centres worldwide. This ensures an enhanced supply chain performance for customers, helping them transport goods through their supply chains more efficiently, sustainably and safely.
