Overwaitea and EV Logistics partner with CHEP to increase supply chain efficiency
Overwaitea Food Group and EV Logistics have announced the expansion of their commercial relationship with CHEP, the pallet pooling solutions provider. The three companies have launched an on-site Total Pallet Management (TPM) solution at Overwaitea's distribution facility in Langley, British Columbia (Canada).
The new operation, which is managed by EV Logistics, will improve transport efficiencies and reduce the environmental impact. The new TPM solution is expected to eliminate the use of more than 5,500 gallons of diesel fuel and nearly 60 tons of CO2 emissions annually.
"The TPM solution is a great example of joint collaboration between CHEP and Overwaitea Foods, and is already resulting in increased efficiency across the supply chain and a dramatic lowering of the carbon footprint. Our management is very pleased with the initial outcome and look to expand our productivity improvement efforts with CHEP and EV in the future," said Wayne Currie, General Manager at Overwaitea Food Group.
"We're using our experience and expertise to help Overwaitea and CHEP streamline pallet management processes at both companies, and are committed to drive continuous improvement in the supply chain through consistent training and implementing best practices," said Dave Martin, Director at EV Logistics.CHEP has been a preferred shipping platform for Overwaitea Foods Group for more than two decades.
