September 15, 2023 marked the first goods of the project in the electronics and home appliance industry, Beko - Hitachi, starting to IN - OUT - Store at An Thanh distribution center, Thuan An, Binh Duong. CJ Gemadept Logistics is proud to become a partner of Beko - Hitachi in storage and distribution of goods in the Southern and Central markets. With experience operating many customers in the electronics and home appliance industry, along with an advanced and outstanding IT platform, the project have been successfully implemented. In particular, the preparation for the project as shared by the operation team only lasted 25 days. Fast - Thorough - and Flexible are short-descriptions of the determination of Dc An Thanh staff in particular and CJ Gemadept in general, contributing to the success of the project.
Some key highlights:
The first advance notes shipment is being received
1. Optimal operating costs: cutting costs is the top priority of almost enterprise. The task of cutting costs is even more evident, especially during the difficult period of the consumer market from the end of 2022 until now. Operating goods at optimal costs while still ensuring all inbound - outbound - storage requirement of customers is always the goal of CJ Gemadept Logistics in this project in particular and all other projects in general.
2. Handling at a large DC (~ 33,000 m2) to take advantage of big scale, thereby saving management costs as well as readying existing resources at DC to support the operation at peak day.
3. Apply Clamp Truck to increase productivity, and optimize the storage capacity, thereby helping customers store more goods while maintaining or even reducing warehouse square meters to use.
4. Apply end-to-end serial standard process, operating on Infor WMS 11.5.1 system. All goods required to be serialized will be scanned in and scanned out at both ends, ensuring accuracy and supporting the track & trace historical information when necessary. In particular, with the end-to-end serial process, all goods - with unique serial - will be managed in detail to each Pallet ID and storage location. The serial number of goods is now not only recorded from where it has been received and to whom it has been shipped but is also ready to query information: where it is being stored, what Pallet ID it belongs to, and what is the history of the transaction in the warehouse, serial status (ready to ship or blocked)..etc...
5. In addition, the problem of clamping force of Clamp Trucks when operating electronics and home appliances is also a problem. When applying clamp trucks, forklift drivers are usually only trained with hard copy documents or pictures and mainly use their experience and memory to handle goods. This can easily lead to the risk of goods falling and being damaged when the forklift driver chooses the wrong level of clamping force (the goods are easily dented when choosing an over-clamping force or easily fall when choosing a below-standard clamping force). To solve this problem, CJ Gemadept has applied a clamping force management solution directly on the WMS system. The system will suggest to the driver to raise the suitable clamp level when put-away or picking. The level of clamping force being used is also saved and managed by the system to remind the forklift driver to change to a new clamping level when necessary. Thus, the worry about the risk of goods falling or denting has been reduced. Clamp Truck forklift drivers have also become more confident when performing clamping operations.
