CHEP Extends Contract with Coca-Cola Refreshments USA
Pallet and container pooling solutions provider CHEP signed a new multi-year contract with Coca-Cola Refreshments USA, Inc.(CCR), a division of The Coca-Cola Company.
Coca-Cola Refreshments is now transporting select Coca-Cola products from more than 400 processing and distribution facilities to supermarkets, club stores, wholesale distributors and foodservice operators across the USA on CHEP pallets.
“Coca-Cola Refreshments will continue to rely on CHEP to help ensure its products get to its loyal consumers in the most efficient and environment-friendly way possible,” said CHEP USA SVP and chief customer officer Brian Malloy.
CHEP said that based on third-party life-cycle inventory analysis, its pooling program will help CCR reduce solid waste generation by up to 3.9 million pounds, decrease greenhouse gas emissions by up to 3 million pounds, and save up to 85,500 BTUs of energy each year as compared with alternative pallet management systems.
