Green benefits for Burton’s
Biscuit maker Burton’s is reaping major environmental benefits with new technology
Burton’s has gained significant additional environmental benefits using CHEP’s Managed Exchange service within its supply chain operation, on top of the already inherently sustainable standard pooled service offer from CHEP.
CHEP’s Managed Exchange (ME) programme is a circular approach to logistics which provides an efficient pooling solution. The manufacturer’s logistics partners collect empty trade quality CHEP pallets from retailers and reuse them without needing to return to a CHEP service centre. It’s an approach Burtons has been using successfully since the offer began.
David Graham, Procurement Manager for Burton’s Biscuit Company, says: “Sustainability through our supply chain is really important to us and partnering with CHEP supports this. By using the ME service we’re saving an additional 66.297 kg CO2/year - which is equivalent to two truck trips around the Earth, so it’s a significant saving.”
