GRIMSBY, Ontario - Feb. 12, 2019 - Cimcorp, a manufacturer and integrator of turnkey robotic order fulfillment and tire-handling solutions, has announced the release of its latest white paper, "A fresh take on food distribution." The white paper explores the rising demands of food & beverage distribution, from managing SKU proliferation and seasonal peaks, to maintaining product freshness. Cimcorp presents automation as the solution to these modern challenges and shares success stories from thriving companies using robotic order fulfillment.
In today's complex food supply chain, warehouses and distribution centers that rely on manual processes may struggle to efficiently and accurately fulfill orders—directly impacting the freshness of goods shipped to retailers and consumers. These challenges are further compounded by consumer demand for product variation, fluctuating seasonal peaks, and a shrinking labor pool.
Automated technology can help facilities:
• Maximize product freshness and shelf life
• Optimize warehouse space to accommodate SKU proliferation
• Manage seasonal peaks and lows
• Mitigate labor shortages
Rick Trigatti, President, Cimcorp Automation Ltd., said, "Today's warehouses and distribution centers are critical points in the supply chain where rapid, efficient and accurate order fulfillment is essential—particularly for fresh produce and food & beverage products. Whether retrofitting an existing facility or tackling a new construction, companies can implement robotic handling technology to optimize material flow from the time products enter the facility, through storage and shipping. The right automated solution will ensure only the freshest products reach store shelves, providing quality goods for consumers and offering companies an edge over their competition."
