Körber has been chosen by Sainsbury’s to provide a software technology to transform its supply chain.
Körber will integrate its K.Motion warehouse management system to enable the transformation of the grocery giant’s logistics and fulfilment networks.
The challenge for Sainsbury’s was finding a WMS adaptable enough to cover the different requirements of the entire company. This includes multiple distribution and fulfilment centres, catering for differing product types across food, general merchandise, and clothing.
The implementation of the Körber WMS is a key part of Sainsbury’s journey to a more integrated network, which will enable it to serve its stores and customers better.
“Fulfilment centres in today’s business landscape need to run at peak efficiency, and solutions that seamlessly integrate processes and reduce complexity are the key to success. With our solution, we provide the agility to cater to Sainsbury’s vast network of stores and broad variety of products,” explained Anton du Preez, Executive Vice President EMEA Sales at Körber Supply Chain Software.
The partnership will allow the two companies to make configuration changes, by incorporating new processes unique to Sainsbury’s, and reduce lead times.
