LIVONIA, MI—Widely known for their success in reducing costs and increasing efficiencies in food and beverage supply chains, CHEP Pallecon Solutions is also proving its value to the cosmetic and personal care industries.
CHEP’s fully outsourced container management solutions help cosmetic and personal care manufacturers overcome the challenges associated with the packaging of non-hazardous ingredients, such as surfactants, essential oils, preservatives and other bulk liquids. Providing hygienic, FDA-approved reusable containers and solutions that allow customers to minimize product loss and contamination, reduce packaging costs, improve sustainability and eliminate waste in their daily operations.
Since implementing CHEP’s FDA-approved reusable container solutions, TRI-K Industries, who specialize in the global distribution of cosmetic ingredients, has seen a 10 percent cost saving as a result of increased fill weights, better utilization of space, lower container costs, and reduced freight costs. In addition, TRI-K has realized better inventory management, improved sanitation, and a reduced carbon footprint.
