SCALE Award honors Godrej Körber's end-to-end solution for leading Indian tea manufacturer Amar Tea
HAMBURG, Germany, Dec. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Godrej Körber is winner of the CII Institute of Logistics - SCALE Awards 2020 in the category 'Process Innovation - Supply Chain Automation'. The award symbolizes Godrej Körber's ability to conquer supply chain complexity.
Supply chains are becoming increasingly complex - with a growing need to handle a widening array of products, SKU's, and distribution channels, all while working to lower costs and outperform the competition. New and emerging technologies can help – but these come with the challenges of implementation and expertise. "Godrej Körber helps organizations to convert these complexities into opportunities. Our recognition by SCALE is a testament to this," says Naresh Tahiliani, Business Head at Godrej Körber.
The award recognizes the first fully integrated automation system for a tea manufacturing company, designed specifically for Amar Tea. As its operations were formerly all manual, Amar Tea could not easily scale. To meet these challenges, Amar Tea relied on Godrej Körber's automated solutions for its manufacturing and distribution facility to meet their growth aspirations for the next 5 to 10 years.
The renowned SCALE (Supply Chain And Logistics Excellence) award 2020 went to Godrej Körber for seamlessly integrating different automated equipment & technologies to support the customer's end-to-end supply chain. The full project scope included the conceptualization, engineering design, selection and integration of an automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS), sortation system, conveyor systems, auto lifts, de-dusters, strapping machines and vacuum lifters, among others. The automated equipment is controlled through Godrej Körber's Warehouse Management System (WMS) and interfaced with the client's ERP for smooth operations across inbound, manufacturing, quality and outbound.
The solution offers Amar Tea significant savings in operational expense (OPEX), enhanced means to ensure reduction of damages to goods and adherence to applicable food safety norms and quality standards. In the last six months, the solution already helped Amar Tea dispatch one million cartons (approx. 20,000 tons) of blended tea.
