Cimcorp was recognized for its continued commitment to helping food and beverage companies optimize distribution, meet fluctuations in demand and ensure the speed of fulfillment and product freshness
GRIMSBY, Ontario—Cimcorp, a manufacturer and integrator of turnkey robotic order fulfillment and tire-handling solutions, announces it has been named to Food Logistics magazine’s 2020 FL100+ list. This is Cimcorp’s sixth consecutive year on the annual list that showcases leading software and technology providers in the food and beverage industry.
Through its advanced robotics and software solutions, Cimcorp has helped food and beverage companies around the world optimize product handling and order fulfillment to realize new efficiencies, space savings and levels of productivity across warehouse operations. The rapid speed of these solutions is particularly beneficial to those distributing products such as produce and baked goods, where maximizing product freshness and shelf life—and therefore the speed of end-to-end handling—are essential. Modular in design, Cimcorp’s systems are fully scalable, allowing customers to increase their number of robots and levels of automation as necessary to meet fluctuations in demand and order volumes year-round.
Derek Rickard, Director of Sales, Cimcorp Automation Ltd., said,
“Demand fluctuations are a common challenge to food and beverage distribution. Yet while most facilities can anticipate surges during the summer months and holiday season, 2020 has been a reminder of the need to prepare for the unexpected. At the onset of COVID-19, we all witnessed the huge spikes in demand that left countless empty grocery store shelves. Many distribution centers had to work tirelessly with a minimal workforce to ensure a fresh, safe and consistent supply of food would be available to consumers during this challenging time. From lessons learned over the past year, more organizations will be looking to build resilience into their businesses, including in their warehouse operations. Scalable, modular automated systems can enable that resilience and provide a form of surge protection. Highly flexible, such solutions can help future-proof a facility to run at its best, no matter how much demand may fluctuate—today, tomorrow and beyond.”
“From fleet management to warehouse management to simply just track and trace along the cold food chain, these software and technology providers have definitely stepped it up to ensure cold food and beverage products continue moving along the line without incident,” says Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “This pandemic has thrown the food industry a curveball, but many of these providers fast-tracked the development and deployment of their solutions to ensure food safety, traceability, visibility and quality assurance. So, to these winners and others in the industry working to make a difference, thank you!”
