In a food and beverage industry that demands a high-level of product freshness, Kirin has to enhance their receiving, picking and shipping capabilities in their breweries and distribution centres in order to remain competitive. Additionally, the newly-implemented system has to be compatible with their current system and be ready for use within a few months.

Kirin Brewery appointed Nichizou Electronic Control to implement the logistics solutions using Motorola enterprise mobility products. Within a short period of time, they were able to design the system, implement, test and introduce the system throughout the breweries and distribution centres.
