GRIMSBY, Ontario — Cimcorp, a manufacturer and integrator of turnkey robotic gantry-based order fulfillment and tire-handling solutions, has been named to the FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers award list, presented by Food Logistics. This is Cimcorp’s third consecutive year on the annual list, which recognizes software and technology providers whose products and services are critical for companies in the global food and beverage supply chain.

“The food and beverage market is always looking for ways to provide consumers with fresher products. In doing so, more and more manufacturers and distributors are looking to warehouse automation,” said Rick Trigatti, North America President, Cimcorp. “The warehouse automation solutions offered by Cimcorp have enabled many food and beverage companies to not only optimize material flow, but also collect data on operations, which are vital when reporting where a product came from and how long it was in the warehouse. By providing manufacturers and distributors with 100-percent traceability, they can have ease of mind when it comes to food quality and safety.”

Cimcorp’s MultiPick is a fully automated robotic material handling solution that offers improved efficiencies, significant savings and fast returns on investments, while allowing food and beverage facilities to stay compliant with strict government regulations. Furthermore, distributors and supply chain professionals utilizing its solutions can employ just-in-time order picking, increase efficiency and rapid material handling, reduce labor costs, eliminate errors and ensure traceability as products move throughout the facility.

“New developments and innovations in the software and technology sector are making sizeable impacts on the global food supply chain,” noted Lara L. Sowinski, Editorial Director, Food Logistics and sister publication Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “The result is a greater visibility, improved regulatory compliance, enhanced shelf life for perishables, and the emergence of a more proactive and nimble food supply chain that benefits both the food industry and its logistics partners, as well as the end consumer.”

The FL100+ is designed to serve as a resource guide for the readers of Food Logistics. Companies who earned a spot on the FL100+ list are featured in the November/December 2017 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at www.foodlogistics.com.
