RPA in the supply chain of a spirits manufacturer and distributor

RPA in the supply chain of a spirits manufacturer and distributor

When robotization is mentioned in logistics, it is often about the flow of physical goods. However, robotization is also happening at the process level, in the area of RPA or robotic process automation. A project of this kind was recently implemented by Stock Plzeň – Božkov in cooperation with Xelto Digital Czechia. The logistics of alcoholic beverages is specific from the point of view of the supervision of state authorities on compliance with the rules for the movement of goods subject to excise duty, and this results in the above-standard settings and solutions for the operation of logistics processes. The case study will focus on several aspects: What exactly is RPA? How does RPA help the manufacturer and distributor of alcoholic beverages in managing the supply chain? And what are the most automated processes within the supply chain? The presentation will also include a concrete demonstration of the automation of control and registration of exports for the customs administration.
