CHEP Pallecon Solutions to Promote Reusable Shipping Containers at IFT 2016

Livonia, MI – June 15th, 2016CHEP Pallecon Solutions, North America’s leading provider of intermediate bulk container solutions, will exhibit at the IFT Annual Meeting & Food Expo in Chicago, Illinois from July 17th to 19th (Booth #4656). IFT is the largest food ingredients show in the world, attracting over 23,000 of the top food science and technology professionals from more than 90 countries, annually.

“After making so many excellent connections at last year’s conference, we are excited to return to IFT for our second year as an exhibitor to present our cost-saving returnable packaging solutions to food and beverage manufacturers,” said Chris Bomgaars, Director of Sales at CHEP Pallecon Solutions.

CHEP will be exhibiting their reusable intermediate bulk containers and accessories for shipping liquid ingredients, as well as their all-inclusive container rental and management solutions, which are designed to help customers cut cost, eliminate waste and mitigate risk. This year will also see CHEP presenting their supply chain tracking technologies, including linear barcode, RFID and temperature tracking options for cold chain.

“We have launched several exciting new technologies this year which we think will be of great interest to the audience at IFT,” said Keith Schall, Director of IT Global Containers BRM with CHEP, “One being the ability to track the temperature of individual pallet spaces with low-cost RFID-enabled tags. We’ve also launched a smartphone application which allows users to access their supply chain information and view live truck locations in the palm of their hand.”
