Swisslog, a global provider of integrated logistics solutions for warehouses and distribution centers, has received the Texas Instruments (TI) 2013 Supplier Excellence Award. The annual award honors companies whose dedication and commitment in supplying products and services meet TI’s high standards for excellence. Swisslog is one of the companies from an elite group of 12 suppliers chosen for their exemplary performance in the areas of Cost, Environmental & Social Responsibility, Technology, Responsiveness, Assurance of Supply, and Quality.
Swisslog was commissioned by TI at the end of 2011 to implement the intralogistic automation for TI’s Product Distribution Center (PDC), located within Singapore’s Free Trade Zone. The facility manages products arriving from 20 inbound countries and orders are consolidated and shipped to 54 outbound countries. The installation of Swisslog’s AutoStore® goods-to-person robotic storage and order fulfillment solution has improved accuracy and space efficiency. The efficient space utilization allowed four times the volume of products to be stored within the same footprint and has resulted in a significant boost in productivity.
"We are honored that our contribution has been recognized by Texas Instruments," said Koh Seng Teck, Head of Swisslog’s WDS Southeast Asia region. "This recognition was built on our continuous commitment to help Texas Instruments meet their supply chain goals by reducing costs and increasing the productivity of their operation."
"As a key business partner, we look to Swisslog to help us achieve our priorities through outstanding execution, quality and performance. Swisslog has demonstrated exceptional commitment in helping us achieve higher productivity and greater efficiency in our supply chain operations. The AutoStore system has given us better inventory control along with greater speed and accuracy to help us support our ‘Analog and Embedded Processing’ customers." said Rob Simpson, Vice President of Worldwide Procurement and Logistics at TI.
