AEB expands in the Philippines to strengthen growing cold chain

AEB’s team in the Philippines handles project implementations, sales, and support with new WMS features to ensure more efficient cold chain services.

AEB milestones in the Philippines

AEB enters the second half of the year with two major milestones — its expansion in the Philippines and building of a new team to handle local operations and new enhancements to its Cold Chain Warehouse Management.

Seeing the growing cold chain market in the Philippines, AEB invested in the country in 2016 to help boost the industry further and broaden its own market. AEB has since been establishing solid relationships with clients and industry partners in the country toward building its foothold in the Philippines’ cold chain market. Currently, AEB has a strong customer base with the major cold storage companies in the Philippines. As part of nurturing industry collaboration, AEB has also been sharing its industry knowledge and expertise in warehouse automation and related cold chain technologies in Cold Chain Association of the Philippines Inc. (CCAP) events. At the same time AEB has continued to master cold chain processes to improve its WMS solutions..

With shifting consumer preferences pushing up demand for chilled and frozen products and the 24/7 economy requiring the availability of foods to meet demand in the BPO sector and 24-hour stores, AEB expects the cold chain market to continue on its upward trajectory and recognizes the importance of continued innovations to support the growing industry. To better serve the market and strengthen its local presence, AEB is establishing a new team in the Philippines made up of both international and local professionals who will work directly with customers and bring the company's services even closer to the Filipino cold chain community.

Growing presence in the cold chain

Recognizing the importance of investing in employees in countries where it operates, AEB is steadfast to grow its Philippine team not only to foster diversity in the company culture but also to better serve its customers, potential or existing. The company’s project management and sales teams are committed to supporting the growing cold chain sector by providing industry-leading solutions and strong support models for project success.

AEB’s Philippine team will oversee and manage the company’s project management and sales in the country. The team will consist of project managers, solution consultants, business development managers and pre-sales consultants. They will be led by Frans Kok, General Manager of AEB Asia Pacific.

Forging the future of smarter cold chains

This ready-to-integrate solution features a flexible, customizable and developer-friendly business intelligence platform for greater business visibility.

As a software provider, AEB constantly develops innovative and modern features to upgrade its WMS and guarantee safe, seamless and cost-efficient operations. The latest features in AEB Cold Chain Warehouse Management include:

  • The blast freezer or bundle receiving feature helps users automatically bundle frozen goods while the returnable packaging management allows businesses to monitor their customers’ packaging materials and provide an updated inventory of materials received and dispatched by the warehouse.
  • Product recall functionality management enables high-degree product tractability during an internal product recall within the warehouse or an external product recall from a customer
  • AEB has developed a set of new picking strategies to better manage frozen product storage, delivery and expiration date.

AEB has also integrated a ready-to-integrate business intelligence tool that can be deployed in a short amount of time. Easy to configure, maintain and future-proof, this business intelligence tool can enhance the standard package with more content and data sources and can be easily tailored to customers' requirements without the need for additional standard implementation developments.
