The CVP-500 beat out 153 submissions to qualify for Best New Product
MHI, an international trade association that represents the material handling, logistics and supply chain industry, announced the CVP-500, an automated packing solution by ProShip, Inc., has been named a finalist for the 2017 MHI Innovation Award: Best New Product.
The MHI Innovation Award educates attendees of ProMat, the largest international material handling, logistics and supply chain show and conference held in North America and South America, about the latest manufacturing and supply chain products and services offered. With over 150 submissions received this year, professionals in the material handling and supply chain industry judged the nominations on cost savings, customer satisfaction, ROI and more. The judges selected four finalists in each category: Best New Innovation; Best Innovation of an Existing Product; and Best IT Innovation based on concept, value and impact.
ProShip’s CVP-500 was selected as a finalist in the Best New Innovation category for its fit-to-size packing automation that optimizes the fulfillment process. The CVP-500 builds, fills, folds and labels single and multi-item orders with variable dimensions in one seamless process and creates a custom-fit parcel every seven seconds. The innovative system also includes the robust parcel rating engine that is part of ProShip’s multi-carrier shipping solution to capture a final weight and dimension for each parcel, and then “rate shop” up to 70 potential carriers for the lowest possible shipping costs.
“We are thrilled to be a finalist in the 2017 MHI Innovation Awards as a Best New Innovation,” said Tim Casey, President of ProShip, Inc. “While some companies can generate custom-sized parcels, many still depend on manual packing. The CVP-500 automates every step of order fulfillment to create a more cost-effective process. Distribution and warehouse operations will enjoy the reliable and more efficient fulfillment process to get more orders out the door fast.”
The CVP-500 will be at ProMat 2017, where ProShip will present the system’s unique solutions to a panel of judges on the show floor on April 3, 2017. The winners in each category will be announced at ProMat 2017 on April 5, 2017 during MHI Industry Night.
