Produce Supply Chain Benefits from Use of Reusable Plastic Crates According to New Study

Chep Australia’s returnable plastic crate (RPC) system for produce has proven its sustainability credentials, delivering customers outstanding environmental performance as well as functionality and financial value in the supply chain.

An independent lifecycle study by RMIT University Melbourne found the Chep RPC system generated significant benefits for customers compared with a single-use corrugated cardboard packaging system.

Based on the results of the study, the estimated benefits on a daily basis are:

More than 175 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions saved
More than 1.2 million litres of water saved
More than 20 tonnes of solid waste avoided.
