CHEP systems planned upgrade October 2018
As part of CHEP’s ongoing commitment to improving your experience, we want to make you aware that we are planning a system upgrade. While we implement this upgrade, there will be an impact to customer transaction systems including Portfolio+Plus, myCHEP and other associated systems.
Customer transaction systems will be unavailable from 6:00pm Friday, 19 October and 6:00pm Monday, 22 October 2018 AEST. We are planning for a 72 hour outage.
To minimise impact to processing transactions, if you are planning to create a movement over this period, please create the document for the movement prior to the system upgrade on the 19 October.
Guidance for Portfolio+Plus and myCHEP system users
Transfer Transactions in Advance and Manual Dockets Process
We request where possible that you enter transfer transactions in advance of the shutdown and complete manual dockets as necessary during the freeze period. CHEP service centres will provide you with a manual docket for any issues or returns that occur during this period.
Click here to access an example of a Manual Docket - Transfer, along with explanatory notes for completing each section.
If you require manual dockets (CHEP Manual Docket, CMD) for any other movements, please ask your Customer Service Representative. Please note, orders for CMD books must be received by close of business Monday, 1 October 2018.
Guidance for EDI Users
Export files (Customer to CHEP*)
We request that weekly invoice customers send their export files by 12pm, Thursday 18 October 2018, to ensure that movements will appear on your invoice. Please note, if you are invoiced monthly, please send your export files as per normal.
Note: Any files sent during the outage period will be held by CHEP and processed once the system outage is complete.
Import files (CHEP to Customer)
No import files will be sent from CHEP during the outage period, however, files for this period will be sent once the system outage is complete.
Guidance for all system users
Schedule Pickups and/or Deliveries in Advance
To minimise the impact to pickups and/or deliveries that you are planning to schedule with CHEP Logistics for 22 or 23 October, please have your requests submitted by 2pm, Thursday 18 October 2018 AEST. This will assist the team with meeting your requests.
Should you require further support with scheduling your pickups and/or deliveries during this time, please contact CHEP Logistics on 1300 CHEP 2U (1300 2437 28).

During the upgrade, the following notifications from CHEP will be delayed:
- Proactive receipt notification from CHEP for equipment order dispatch and collection
- Automated email alerts on corrections and reversals
- Advance notice on loads booked with CHEP Logistics for next day delivery and collection
These notifications relating to your account activity over the outage period will be sent to you once the upgrade is completed. Please note: you may receive a backlog of these notifications.
