Swisslog receives 2013 Supplier Excellence Award from Texas Instruments

Swisslog is the latest recipient of the Texas Instruments (TI) 2013 Supplier Excellence Award, an annual recognition given to companies whose dedication and commitment in supplying products and services meet TI’s high standards for excellence.

Swisslog, a global provider of integrated logistics solutions for warehouses and distribution centres, is part of 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.

Swisslog installed its AutoStore goods-to-person robotic storage and order fulfilment solution to deliver improved accuracy and space efficiency at TI’s Singapore PDC. The efficient space utilisation allowed four times the volume of products to be stored within the same footprint, resulting in a significant boost in productivity.

Koh Seng Teck, Head of Swisslog’s WDS Southeast Asia region commented that the recognition was built on their continuous commitment to help Texas Instruments meet their supply chain goals by reducing costs and increasing the productivity of their operation.

Rob Simpson, Vice President of Worldwide Procurement and Logistics at TI adds that TI considers Swisslog as a key business partner to help them achieve their priorities through outstanding execution, quality and performance. According to him, Swisslog has demonstrated exceptional commitment in helping TI achieve higher productivity and greater efficiency in their supply chain operations with the AutoStore system delivering better inventory control along with greater speed and accuracy to help them support their Analogue and Embedded Processing customers.
