Optimizing the Lithium Battery Supply Chain
From the EBN Online Newswire... Meeting Major Logistics Challenge: How Global Robotics Manufacturer Optimized Lithium Battery Supply Chain Shipping. A story about how Omron Adept Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Omron Corporation, faced a major logistics challenge. The Question: How to transfer the entire shipping process for the company’s line of industrial robots in-house and train staff to meet stringent hazmat transport regulations for large format lithium batteries. The Answer: By partnering with Labelmaster, the company optimized its supply chain process and enhanced its dangerous goods regulatory compliance procedures.
Omron purchased Labelmaster’s Dangerous Goods Information System (DGIS), a software solution for managing dangerous goods shipping. A Labelmaster software consultant visited the plant to conduct individual training sessions for platform users. “From the time I contacted Labelmaster to the time we were up and running was just over a month,” said Watson. “That was a big win for us because implementation of such programs can take much longer.” Watson and team appreciate the ease of use of the DGIS software. “DGIS is very intuitive with prompts for everything needed, and the warehouse staff has an easy time working with it,” said Watson. “In fact, it’s probably one of the more user-friendly software systems I’ve ever installed in the warehouse.”
