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.
