Godrej Material Handling, a business of Godrej & Boyce Mfg. Co., in collaboration with Greendzine Technologies, on Wednesday, launched a new and innovative motorised order-picking trolley called the MOPTro.
The new MOPTro is a natural extension to Godrej’s existing product – the SKUtro; a manual order-picking system which was launched last year to aid in improving shop floor mobility and employee productivity. The move comes in line with the company’s vision of improving India’s intra-warehousing logistics and supply chain.
MOPTro, a first of its kind in India, is designed to revolutionise the everyday manual order-picking practices by simplifying the tedious manual picking process for operators, ensuring accurate picking and put-away.
Companies have a distinct edge over the others when they leverage intralogistics technologies to handle the internal logistics of their operations in order to streamline supply chain management.
The software on the mobile device attached to MOPTro helps in showing the fastest aisle route to picking a product thus enabling greater throughput.
With two subdued quarters owing to the extension of lockdown and the staggered easing of restrictions, India Inc is going all out to fulfil the pent-up demand in the remaining two quarters of the fiscal year. Most of this demand is coming from tier-2 and tier-3 cities and therefore time is of the essence in fulfilling these orders. SKUtro has proven to be an innovative mobility cum transport innovation in the intra-logistic space since its launch last year. We, at Godrej Material Handling, have partnered for MOPTro, a natural extension to SKUtro that rides on the demand for motorized order-picking solutions. It comes with all the benefits of SKUtro and more. Through this partnership, we hope to help both operators and industries like e-commerce, 3PL and manufacturing emerge stronger.”~ Anil Lingayat, executive VP & business head, Godrej Material Handling
There is no doubt that the secret to a smart supply chain lies in creating robust internal logistics. Efficient intra-logistics enhances the process of optimizing, integrating, automating and managing the logistical physical flows of supply, production and distribution within the confinements of a distribution centre. By combining information processing with updated material-handling software, optimal productivity has been achieved for both manual and automated systems.
