LeanLogistics, a provider of transportation management system (TMS) applications and supply chain services, has expanded into Europe with offices in the United Kingdom and Spain.
These European offices provide sales and support for the company’s technologies. LeanLogistics On-Demand TMS delivers value for organizations seeking ways to leverage their transportation process as a means of improving supply chain efficiencies. In addition, On-Demand TMS offers multi-language capabilities and specific functionality to support European regulations and processes.
CHEP, a provider of pallet and container pooling, is a LeanLogistics technology customer in North America and is implementing On-Demand TMS in Europe to manage inbound and outbound truckload, less-than-truckload, and intermodal shipments. CHEP’s 300 million pallets and containers support more than 500,000 customer touch-points globally. LeanLogistics and CHEP are both part of Brambles Limited.
“CHEP operates in 49 countries, so it only makes sense to implement the same technology throughout our other business sectors to manage our transportation more efficiently while reducing costs,” said Juan Pablo Negus, vice-president of logistics, Europe. “We selected LeanLogistics to manage CHEP’s millions of dollars in freight because of its proven success with our North American operations.”
CHEP issues, collects, conditions, and reissues pallets and containers from a global network of service centers for companies and brands such as Sysco, Procter & Gamble, Kraft, and Nestlé, helping manufacturers and growers transport products to distributors and retailers.
