The 2019 edition of what has now become an annual event for CMC, a leading company in the production and manufacture of picking and packaging systems for the e-commerce industry, ended with great success.
An unparalleled event this year that brought over 100 companies to the area, one of the world leaders in eCommerce packaging solutions and exponents of maximizing logistics efficiencies.
The 16th century frescoed rooms of Palazzo Vitelli in Citta Di Castello hosted a morning full of presentations and case studies supplied by customers and leading CMC partners such us bol.com, Rebuy, Alle Kabels, Kitapyurdu and Agan TPE. A combination of art and innovative technology with great attention to highly topical subjects: continuous improvement of the production process thanks to the implementation of industrial automation and artificial intelligence, data security in the supply chain and eco-sustainability provided the cornerstones for a constantly expanding entrepreneurial journey.
Francesco Ponti, CEO and his father Giuseppe, who has been at the helm of CMC for over 40 years concluded their work with great pride by revealing the new innovation for 2019, “CMC e-tote Smartstore”, an intermediate fully automated tote-based warehouse capable of managing the entire product inventory process until shipment.
The e-tote SmartStore enchanted the more than 200 delegates who viewed the plant during the visit to the production plant to see demonstrations of the whole range of solutions. Products of various sizes were automatically taken from the e-tote SmartStore warehouse and introduced into the now famous CMC CartonWrap system which made a box perfectly tailored to the products to be shipped. A system that today has over 150 installations worldwide in some the largest international e-commerce companies.
Particular attention was also given to the CMC BubbleWrap system, which is able to create a custom-made bag that is completely 100% recyclable, in line with the principles of respect for eco-sustainability implemented in the supply chain.
Satisfied and at the same time visibly moved, Giuseppe Ponti commented: “We have already received several enquiries for the new SmartStore system that rewards and confirms the path of innovation that CMC has taken to conquer new markets” “
