Deliver the freshest products to market all year round

It goes without saying that you want to push fresh, oven-baked goods out to stores as fast as possible.

Scroll through to see what you should consider when automating bakery fulfillment facilities.

High service level

Stay ahead of your competitors! When you’re making regular, timed deliveries of freshly baked goods to customers, certainty is of the essence.

Achieve improved customer satisfaction with automation, and secure your bakery-to-store order lead time.


Ensure consistency and volume. Humans can’t work as quickly, or for as long, as machines.

The throughput of an automated system can be up to six times that of a manual one.

Speed and accuracy

Think: you don’t need storage or a warehouse. You just want to achieve a rapid-throughput bakery line with error-free, store-friendly deliveries. This will increase sustainability and lower costs.

Take productivity and profitability to new heights by enlarging the order process window; you can even achieve a larger store distribution base for your baked goods.


Essential within a consolidated facility is controlling inventory volume while maintaining enough supply for rapid order fulfillment.

An effective warehouse control system can assist distributors in their facility. By harnessing vast quantities of data, a WCS can efficiently analyze and handle inventory management and replenishment.

By optimizing inventory control, facility space will not be eaten up by overstock or an abundance of slow moving items, and fulfillment speed will be maintained for customer satisfaction.

Cimcorp’s automation is central to enabling this effcient product movement and is therefore pivotal to our bakery business. Cimcorp worked closely with us to develop an ideal solution that would make optimal use of our warehouse space and meet our present and future business needs.

Less spoilage and waste

Achieve consistency in product quality. With rapid throughput you can deliver your fresh bakery products fast to stores.

The FIFO method will keep your SKUs in order and vehicles will be loaded in route order for easy unloading.


It goes without saying that food safety is essential. Benefit from storage that takes place on the floor, without the need for racking. ​

​Totes can easily be cleared, allowing the area to be cleaned thoroughly, and maintaining superior hygiene standards.​

Personnel safety

It goes without saying that food safety is paramount. With automation, there’s no need for human intervention.

And say goodbye to heavy lifting! Avoid employee injuries and manual order fulfillment errors with high-tech, fully automated solutions.

Adapt to seasonal changes in order volume and demand

Benefit from modular resilience and reduce vulnerability.

Choose a scalable automation solution to suit your business needs by adding or removing modules.

Automation should grow with your business and adapt to it.

Store-friendly deliveries

Enhance store-friendly deliveries and reduce costs by optimizing the picking and loading of orders. Within a short time period, flows can be sorted and grouped per order, delivery unit, or shipment, and dispatched in the sequence required.

The final result is fast, efficient order consolidation and store-friendly delivery with minimal manual labor requirements.

More products going out the door during peak months

We feel very confident in the efficiency gains that we have attained as well as the labor savings and order accuracies that we’ve enhanced through use of these systems.

System lifetime

Even automated solutions need support in order to function error-free all year, every year.

Automation is a big investment, so make sure it will have a lifetime of at least 20 years.

You will want to achieve maximum uptime. Plan ahead and secure your automation with the spare parts and staff training required to keep your systems up and running.

Fazer Bakeries invested in a full-scale retrofit to secure a lifetime of up to 20 years of support and spare parts.

Our main motivator to invest was to keep the reliability of our deliveries high.

Trust is vital in an automation partnership. Find a system integrator who will listen to your challenges and find solutions for them; one who will take care of your other system providers, leaving you space to breathe.


A fully automated bakery will reduce the number of hours your personnel need to spend resolving issues. Go further and find a system integrator who will look ahead and help to develop your factory with you, keeping the future scalability, flexibility and functionality of all systems in mind.

Controlling material flow within the three order picking areas

It is important, in realizing this highly automated operation, not only to have a partner with experience and the ability to provide a quality solution, but also one who can guarantee the corresponding support services once the system is in productive operation.
