from the same business document: I have no idea what "big chep" means. The company deals in washing powders, so I assume it has something to do with that

Grosse Chep Paletten


Explanation:
I would like to second the first answer. I have dealt with Chep - my current employer supplies them with pallet boxes - check out their website. In this context it might be useful to know that pallets usually come in two sizes 1200 x 800 is the Euro size, the UK has 1200 x 1000 mm as the standard size. The 'big' may be referring to the UK size, but that's just a guess.
