Cimcorp earns fourth consecutive FL100+ honors from food logistics magazine

Dec 17, 2018 Cimcorp North America

Leading intralogistics automation provider recognized for its solutions that help food and beverage companies optimize material flow, product freshness and consumer safety

GRIMSBY, Ontario — Dec. 17, 2018— Cimcorp, a manufacturer and integrator of turnkey robotic gantry-based order fulfillment and tire-handling solutions, announces it has been named to Food Logistics magazine’s FL100+ list for the fourth consecutive year. Presented annually, the list recognizes software and technology providers whose products and services are critical for companies in the global food and beverage supply chain.

“The digital supply chain continues its rapid emergence, bringing with it expanded capabilities that impact visibility, security, compliance and efficiency,” said Lara L. Sowinski, Editorial Director for Food Logistics and its sister publication, Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Every aspect of the global food supply chain stands to benefit from new and innovative software and technology that is fundamentally changing the global food supply chain.”

Rick Trigatti, North America President, Cimcorp, said,

“The warehouse is a critical point in the food supply chain, as the proper storage and movement of products in order fulfillment directly impacts the freshness, quality and safety of goods on store shelves. As products flow through the warehouse, many factors can affect the accuracy and efficiency of orders—from human error or the physical distance between storage and the loading docks, to product type or the number of cases per order. Our automated solutions help manufacturers and distributors mitigate these risks and optimize material flow—whether they are handling dairy products or beverages, or baked goods or fresh produce.”

Notably, Cimcorp’s MultiPick robotic system enables warehouses that store large volumes of product in crates, totes or trays to employ just-in-time order picking, reduce costs and increase efficiency as products move throughout the facility. Orders are picked with 100-percent accuracy and at faster speeds, resulting in shorter lead times and maximized product shelf life. With less human intervention, warehouses can not only mitigate gaps in operations left by wide-felt labor shortages, but also find new savings through reduced labor costs as well as increased productivity due to streamlined operations.
