The food & beverage industry serves a wide range of sectors: food chains, grocery stores, restaurants, hotels, schools, and large institutions of all kinds. With higher demand for variety of food and beverages, micro fulfillment centers are becoming widespread.
FEFO – First Expiration, First Out
Changing demand during peak times
Fast growth of food e-Commerce
Multichannel orders handled in the same fulfillment center
Shortage of reliable warehouse workers
Demand for delivery accuracy
Food safety – less human intervention
Caja Robotics solution is made to easily futurize your food & beverage warehouse. Our solution uses an adaptive, scalable, and responsive system to do exactly that.
Caja’s solution is optimized for food and beverage fulfillment center logistics.
The main concern of this industry is the freshness of delivered goods and avoiding expired products, so our system supports a FEFO feature – items close to their expiration dates will be the first ones to go out for delivery – benefiting both the customers and the fulfillment centers.
Caja’s solution is designed for optimization, from the lightning-fast inbound replenishment process that fits multi-sized bins and boxes to the daily tasks that demand synchronizing with pre-installed WMS (Warehouse Management System). Meanwhile, it carefully controls omni-channels orders, future orders prediction algorithms, warehouse optimization, and order returns, making them fast and simple with WMS synchronization, which brings item availability back online quickly.
Caja’s food & beverage goods-to-person picking process keeps delivery accuracy at peak levels, and fits your FEFO needs, sending out items close to their expiration dates first.
The bin consolidation process, combined with multi-SKU bins, maximizes fulfillment center space usage.
Caja robotics’ system is elastic and adaptable, offering quick, easy expansion of the number of robots during peak times or fulfillment center growth.
Caja’s solution for the food & beverage market is not just a picking platform, it is an A-Z, full-process solution.
I can’t explain – in words – how excited I am to see this strategy pay off with this large Caja installation. It will not only benefit the customer but could potentially provide a solution for an entire industry segment.
