Cimcorp’s robotic order fulfillment solutions are developed to meet the challenges that companies face in today’s consumer goods market. These challenges are largely due to the increase in e-commerce and the resulting changes necessary to keep up with demand. To overcome these challenges, manufacturers, retailers and wholesalers need a well-organized, multi-channel distribution strategy that can be easily updated.
We have experience working with customers that have different distribution strategies. Some manufacturers ship orders to retailers, some use direct store delivery (DSD) and some ship orders to retail outlets. Some retailers use drop shipping as their supply chain management technique. They prefer to use drop shipping so they do not have to keep goods in stock. Instead, they transfer customer orders and shipment details to a manufacturer, another retailer or a wholesaler, that then ships the goods directly to the customer.
Automated solutions for order picking
and order fulfillment
We offer order picking, or order fulfillment, solutions that are developed for full-crate, item, case and layer picking. Our robotic automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) are designed for goods-to-person manual picking as well as buffer storing. Automated solutions are ideal for grocery retailers, e-commerce retailers, multi-channel retailers, 3PLs, customers that ship food (dairy products, bakery products, and fresh produce), beverage distributors, and daily consumer goods and general merchandise resellers.
Although we offer total order fulfillment solutions that automate the entire distribution center or dispatch area of a manufacturer, it is not always feasible to invest in full automation. In these scenarios, ‘islands’ of automation – fully integrated with the surrounding manual operations – enable clients to achieve maximum benefit for minimum investment
