A number of our team members have worked for Chep
Australia in the past. So, we have the in-house knowledge required to
understand and successfully work with Chep's

The New Chep System
As you may be aware, in late February 2008, Chep
is changing to a new computer system that will require 10
digit account numbers and 13 digit docket numbers for transfers. All
our team is being kept fully up to date with these changes and the
requirements necessary to minimise errors and inconvenience.
As pallet management is our business, we make the time necessary to ensure
these changes are implemented correctly. The 2ic software program we supply

changes further strengthen the benefits of using an electronic transfer
Competent In the Coles System
In late January 2008, the Coles group of companies is making a change from
using the Chepcard system for Chep
pallets and manual system for Loscam to using the
SAVI program to handle all their pallets transfer requirements.
As with the changes to Chepís processes, we are
fully up to date with these new processes and are in regular contact with
the pallet control department at Coles to ensure a good working
relationship between us to minimise any potential problems.
Up-To-Date With All Distribution Centre Needs
One of the changes to Chepís procedures with
their new system is that the quantity of delay periods used by the various
retail distribution centres throughout Australia, as well as other Chep clients, has been reduced to 2 only. X number of
days from dispatch or X number of days from delivery.
We at Pallet Logistics are fully up to date with these changes and
will simplify the processes for our clients by setting up the
databases supplied to our clients, so that it automatically calculates the
correct effective date, when transfer dockets are created.
