Food Logistics magazine included Livonia, Mich.-based CHEP on its Top 100 list of technology suppliers again this year.
CHEP’s traceability technology earned the recognition, according to a news release.
This is the company’s ninth consecutive year on the Top 100 list, which recognizes companies that have created tech solutions that help food and beverage manufacturers.
CHEP’s proprietary asset management system, CHEP-TRAC, includes barcode and RFID technoglogy that enable customers to track assets throughout the supply chain and more easily comply with FSMA requirements, according to the release. Customers have access to reports that provide weight, temperature, order quantity and batch number data.
CHEP also uses asset ID tags that allow users to capture data related to their HACCP plans and immediately load it into the web-based cloud system.
Finally, the company has also introduced active tracking technology with data accessible to users via the CHEP Containers mobile app, a lower cost RFID model for item level tracking, according to the release.
“New developments and innovations in the software and technology sector are making sizeable impacts on the global food supply chain,” Lara Sowinski, editorial director for Food Logistics, said in the release. “The result is a greater visibility, improved regulatory compliance, enhanced shelf life for perishables and the emergence of a more proactive and nimble food supply chain that benefits both the food industry and its logistics partners, as well as the end consumer.”
