FMCG Pillar New Banner


In the highly competitive and dynamic fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector, FMCG companies heavily rely on cutting-edge manufacturing technologies to maintain a competitive edge. In Singapore, innovation in manufacturing technology & supply chain operations has become increasingly crucial for FMCG companies to optimise resource utilisation while remaining cost-effective. The market today emphasises convenience, accessibility, and sustainability, which drives these manufacturers to continuously adapt and innovate to stay ahead.

The FMCG & e-Commerce pillar at ARTC collaborates with industry partners to enhance production efficiency, streamline supply chain operations, and achieve sustainability goals. In addition, the pillar can help modernise and automate warehouse operations for third-party logistics providers (3PLs) with AI-based 3D space optimisation. Leveraging advanced technology capabilities such as robotics automation, AI-driven systems, digital supply chain, and sustainable operation management, the pillar revolutionises FMCG manufacturing operations by providing solutions to build resilient value chains and supply chains through the productisation of digital supply chain platforms.

Focus Areas
