AFGC CHEP Retail index

Unique insight into the performance of the Australian retail market

The AFGC CHEP Retail Index is an analytical tool derived from the unique data CHEP holds from millions of physical pallet and product movements across Australian supply chains. It tracks trends in these movements and predicts likely outcomes for the next quarter.

Using analysis by Deloitte Analytics and commentary from AFGC, which represents Australia's $108 billion food and grocery manufacturing sector, the AFGC CHEP Retail Index offers a new insight into the performance of Australia's retail market. It uses an accurate forward indicator of retail trade sales published ahead of official Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) historical data.

By combining a range of measures of pallet movements - pallets on hire, pallets received and pallets sent for various industries and applying advanced analytics relationships can be extracted that model retail sales.

Given its strong correlation to the ABS Retail Trade data, it, in conjunction with other information, provides insight into the retail trade environment in Australia now and in the future.

Aggregating a combination of robust data sources, the AFGC CHEP Retail Index will inform and update business on trends impacting the Australian retail sector. The Index will be produced on a quarterly basis.
