CHEP's contract renewal with Norman Collett

02 August 2011

CHEP has signed a two-year contract with Norman Collett, a specialist in the marketing of English apples, pears and stone fruit to the UK's major supermarkets and wholesale markets

The agreement builds on the existing relationship between the two organisations, spanning 15 years.

Norman Collett Commercial Director, Michael Joyles, said: “From our perspective, it’s great to be working with a company that understands our business model and gains such an in-depth appreciation of our requirements.

“Given the nature of the products we are dealing with, timely supply is obviously fundamental. With CHEP, we know availability is never an issue, and I think this new deal recognises that.”

Under the new agreement, which commenced on 1 July 2011, CHEP’s existing supply of pallets and containers to Norman Collett will expand to 540,000 movements over the two-year term of the contract, including standard B1210A pallets and reusable plastic crates.

CHEP UK & Ireland Commercial Director, Gill Sinclair, said: “We’re delighted to be extending our partnership with Norman Collett in this way, as it clearly demonstrates the benefits of a long-standing relationship for both parties.

“The nature of Norman Collett’s business is obviously very seasonal, so it’s pleasing that the company recognises the value and benefit of the CHEP network and the associated service levels we are able to deliver.”
