GRIMSBY, Ontario—Jan. 16, 2020—Cimcorp, a manufacturer and integrator of turnkey robotic order fulfillment and tire-handling solutions, announces the release of its new white paper, "Warehouse automation—built for speed," which looks at current consumer expectations for speed of delivery and how manufacturers, distributors and retailers are innovating to keep up. According to Cimcorp, one of the best ways to bolster fulfillment speed today is through robotic warehousing solutions, enabling the rapid and accurate movement of products bound for stores and customers.
Derek Rickard, Sales Manager, Cimcorp Automation, Ltd., said, "Two-day and next-day shipping times have become the new expectation—as set by online leaders like Amazon. This has put mounting pressure on organizations to increase their own supply chain velocities. Then there are those in the fresh food business, where speed is a constant necessity for maximizing product quality, freshness and shelf life. What warehouse automation offers is an ideal solution with numerous dividends."
Rickard continued, "Those who automate enjoy greater efficiencies, reduced labor requirements, better space utilization, and more. They're able to keep customers satisfied, which leads to more return business—making speed of delivery by way of automation a competitive differentiator."
The Cimcorp white paper delves deeper into the topic of speed of delivery, including:
• What the Amazon Effect is and its impact on consumer expectations
• Other ways that companies are trying to speed up their supply chains, including by opening micro-fulfillment centers and looking to third-party logistics (3PL) providers
• The key benefits of automated warehouses and distribution centers
• Two examples of innovative, automated distribution centers from the fresh food and dairy industries
• How to ensure an automated system is not only built for speed, but also built to last
