The Downing Centre Local Court in Sydney has ruled in favour of CHEP in an equipment misuse case involving an independent fruit and vegetable retailer.
CHEP Asia-Pacific has become aware that a number of participants in the Produce Markets have been using CHEP equipment which is not subject to a CHEP hiring account, and took legal action to recover its equipment.
The retailer was ordered by the Court to return CHEP pallets and cages that were being used without being on hire and also to pay all court costs.
CHEP has the immediate right to possession of all its equipment at all times.
CHEP is concerned to protect each item of its equipment. Only by doing so can costs be kept down for legitimate users of the CHEP equipment pool.
CHEP is pleased to announce that the retailer has now opened an equipment hire account.
