SAN BRUNO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Locix, a next-generation innovator in Warehouse Intelligence Solutions (WIS), was selected as an award recipient of Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s Top Supply Chain Projects for 2022. Locix’s winning project featured leading global distribution and logistics company MITSUI-SOKO Supply Chain Solutions (MSCS) and the deployment of Locix’s WIS to increase productivity in its Japan and Malaysia facilities.
“We are honored that our joint initiative was recognized for its strategic effort to accelerate the digital transformation of logistics and supply chain,” said Vik Pavate, CEO of Locix. “Our collaboration with MSCS reinforces the value proposition behind Locix’s vision for a WIS-enabled supply chain in the future.”
To increase productivity, efficiency and safety within the warehouse, MSCS leveraged Locix’s SmartLPS solution to gain unprecedented visibility into their core operations. This enabled them to baseline performance, drive continuous improvement and maximize productivity; ultimately, reducing worker walking distance by over 23% and increasing picking efficiency by 13%.
“The past 18 months have been a tumultuous time for U.S. supply chains,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “But, the core reason today's supply chains haven't completely fallen apart is because solutions providers have been working diligently to partner with customers and clients to streamline processes, implement emerging technology and deliver results that improve bottom lines and the environment. For many of these collaborations, it's about achieving full visibility, complete forecasting, end-to-end leverage and the ultimate in sustainability.”
The Top Supply Chain Projects (formerly known as SDCE 100) spotlights successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium, and large enterprises across various supply chain functions.
