HUTCHISON PORTS are the world’s leading port network with over 30,000 employees, operating ports and terminals in 26 countries in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, the Americas and Australasia. In 1866, they started as the Hong Kong and Whampoa Dock Company, constructing and repairing ships. By 1969, they had diversified into cargo and container handling as Hongkong International Terminals Limited (Hutchison Ports HIT), and in 1994, as their international network of ports grew, they became Hutchison Port Holdings Limited (Hutchison Ports). Further expansion followed, into logistics and transportation businesses, including cruise ship terminals, airport operations, distribution centres, rail services and ship repair.

DKSH, Asia’s leading Market Expansion Services provider, continues to lead the way for healthcare companies seeking to grow their business in Asia with the recent addition of innovative automatization solutions to one of its distribution centers. By introducing state-of-the-art automated storage and warehousing features, the new healthcare distribution center features automation equipment such as mobile storage systems and a fleet of robotic-enabled Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) designed to provide efficient distribution and seamless logistics support to its international clients and consumers in Hong Kong.

Complementing the AGVs, the vertical carousels included in the new distribution center are ideal for smaller medical devices or piece-pick pharmaceuticals, while the mobile racking system substantially reduces footprint by up to 45 percent as compared to traditionally used racking systems. The facility also houses a series of automated systems that showcases DKSH’s digital and innovation strategies. Concepts such as “machine learning” and “advanced data analytics” are put into practice in daily distribution operations.
