To support the Government's efforts to stop the spread of the coronavirus, we will postpone upcoming roundtable luncheons, seminars, training programmes and networking receptions. Safeguarding public health is our top priority. We will announce the new date in due course and arrange a full refund for those who have booked. Thank you for your understanding.
A key benefit of e-commerce adoption is efficiency gains. At HKTVmall, the leading online retailer has successfully leveraged technology to optimize and streamline its operations. To achieve the goal of "next day delivery", HKTVmall has introduced a robotic pick and pack system from Germany in its Multimedia and Ecommerce Centre in Tseung Kwan O.
The first of its kind in Hong Kong, the automated system comprises conveying, automatic picking, automatic storage and retrieval, and tote handling functions that are powered by a material flow control and automatic management software. Previously labour-intensive logistics procedures have been mechanized and automated through the system, which have raised efficiency and improved accuracy in fulfilling orders.
To learn how automation can enhance a company's operational efficiency and scalability, members are invited to participate in a Chamber visit to HKTV Multimedia and Ecommerce Centre on Thursday, 20 February 2020.
This visit is exclusively for HKGCC members. As places are limited, priority is given to corporate members with a maximum of two representatives from each member company. Additional places will be subject to availability. The Chamber and the hosting party reserve the right to reject any applications.
The tentative itinerary is as follows:
15:20 Coach pick up at Kowloon Tong MTR Station
16:00 Arrive at the HKTVmall Centre at Tseung Kwan O
16:05 Overview of the HKTVmall
16:35 Showcase tour
