Hamburg, March 10, 2021 - This week, Körber is demonstrating the capabilities of its unmatched breadth of technologies and decades of expertise at its annual supply chain user conference Elevate. With Kӧrber, businesses around the world make strong, strategic investments for today and the future of their supply chains.
“Our depth makes us different,” said Bill Ryan, Chief Executive Officer North America Software, Kӧrber Business Area Supply Chain. “Less than 10% of businesses can handle today’s supply chain challenges. More than ever, businesses need a partner that provides the full breadth of technologies and services to conquer their complexities. We are that single source. Our achievements in growing our business and that of our customers in the past year is a testament to this.”
The COVID-19 pandemic has tested supply chain resilience and disrupted approaches to warehousing and logistics. Combine this with heightening consumer expectations, more products, growing distribution channels, and competitive pressures – supply chains are more complex than ever. Kӧrber embraces these challenges.
“The global pandemic has pushed supply chains to the brink,” said Chad Collins, Chief Executive Officer Software, Kӧrber Business Area Supply Chain. “It’s critical businesses prepare for disruption. No matter the complexity, no matter where along the workflow, we have the software for the job – enabling full insight and optimizing management of distribution systems.”
“We at Körber see supply chain challenges as an opportunity,” added Sean Elliott, Chief Technology Officer and Chief Digital Officer Software at Kӧrber Business Area Supply Chain. “Through the design and implementation of automated solutions based on advanced data analytics and actionable insights, Kӧrber has a record for streamlining and enhancing operations end to end.”
Kӧrber’s portfolio enabled stability and success for businesses worldwide. Capitalizing on software, automation technology, mobility, robotics and material handling equipment, examples include:
•Food and beverage retailer Arizona Beverage reduced costs and increased efficiencies with the K.Motion Warehouse Management System and K.Motion Warehouse Control System.
•With its partner Locus Robotics, Körber deployed autonomous mobile robots (AMR) at sports gear and apparel retailer evo in less than two months from signing the contract to speed up fulfillment at the height of the pandemic.
•Western apparel retailer Boot Barn optimized automation technology via the K.Motion Warehouse Control System.
These achievements come one year after the consolidation of 12 leading-supply chain companies under the Kӧrber brand.
