CHEP’s container management service provides a smarter, simpler way to transport automotive parts from point A to point B, for less.
We understand operating in the automotive industry today requires an increasing strategic & operational flexibility given increasing consumer demands, governmental safety and environmental regulations. The way that automakers respond to these challenges is through innovation - improving designs, manufacturing processes, logistics, or other business practices to achieve peak performance and operational efficiency. An efficient supply chain is a competitive advantage. Every minute your employees spend sorting, inspecting, cleaning and maintaining containers is time away from your company's core competency. CHEP can help you achieve greater clarity about current container management processes by evaluating whether continuing to own and operate containers in-house, is still the right strategic option for future growth and profitability. CHEP offers a comprehensive container management solution that allows you to run a more efficient supply chain.
Convertible Trailer Manufacturing Ltd, CTM, is a Canadian company whose primary interest is to continue to develop and supply “Convertible” style auto transportation equipment to the auto transportation sector in all markets worldwide.
