Cimcorp Named to Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s Top Supply Chain Projects List for 2021
Cimcorp, a manufacturer and integrator of turnkey robotic order fulfillment and tire-handling solutions, has been named a 2021 Top Supply Chain Projects winner by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine, marking its third appearance on the annual award list.
Cimcorp earned this year’s recognition for helping global third-party logistics (3PL) provider GEODIS automate its Clayton, Indiana warehouse, enabling faster order fulfillment and complete picking accuracy with its robotic Layer Pick solution.
Formerly known as the SDCE 100, the Top Supply Chain Projects list spotlights successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across a range of supply chain functions. These projects show how solution and service providers help clients achieve excellence and prepare their supply chains for success.
To win the business of a major consumer goods provider, GEODIS partnered with Cimcorp and systems integrator Advanced Handling Systems (AHS) to implement an automated distribution solution in the Clayton warehouse. Cimcorp supplied its Layer Pick system—a key feature integrated into the overall solution—that uses a gantry robot to rapidly pick products stored in layered quantities from a large volume of inventory.
Ideal for 3PL providers like GEODIS, Layer Pick is reportedly flexible enough to handle practically any consumer product on the market, and its compact design easily integrates into existing facility footprints.
By offering an automated solution, GEODIS was selected to handle warehousing and distribution operations for one of the largest suppliers of over-the-counter health products in North America. Notably, the system has drastically increased throughput for GEODIS, picking a notable 3,000 layers of product a day in just two shifts versus three.
Layer Pick reportedly ensures 100-percent accuracy of every order, as well as complete product traceability, for improved customer satisfaction. With picking fully automated, GEODIS has also eliminated the labor challenges, safety concerns, and inefficiencies associated with manual handling.
