Frey Farms Produce Extends Relationship with CHEP

Just in time for Halloween, Frey Farms Produce, the largest grower/packer/shipper of pumpkins in the USA has renewed its pallet rental partnership with CHEP, according to the pallet rental leader. Frey Farms Produce is now transporting its branded pumpkins, watermelons and cantaloupes from its facilities in Florida, Texas, Georgia, Missouri, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Colorado and Michigan to supermarkets, wholesalers, club stores, fresh processors and foodservice operators in the USA and Canada on CHEP pallets.

Frey Farms Produce moved from limited-use, non-pooled pallets, known as “white wood,” to the CHEP pallet pooling program primarily to address cost issues. The fresh produce company also wanted to meet customer demands for a high-quality, reliable shipping platform.

Frey Farms Produce CEO Sarah Talley said: “CHEP provides several major benefits, including a cost effective, heavy duty, quality pallet. CHEP pallets are very solid, which minimizes in-transit shipping problems and promotes safety in handling. Additionally, being reusable, CHEP enhances sustainability and promotes green initiatives. Using CHEP is a win-win.”

CHEP USA Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing Karen Hempel said: “Frey Farms Produce is an excellent example of a company that has grown rapidly because of its ability to meet its customers’ demands efficiently. CHEP is proud to be playing a role in the streamlining of Frey Farms Produce’s supply chain. Our team is dedicated to working continuously to improve productivity and customer service.”
