The global warehouse automation market is expected to grow to $19.5 billion by FY2025, and the pandemic has further underscored the segment’s significance. To address this growing market, a joint venture between Godrej & Boyce, the flagship company of the Godrej Group, and Germany-based KörberSupply Chain has pioneered the role of intralogistics across different sectors by offering differentiated automation solutions. Godrej Körberexceeded order intake targets with order books full in FY2022, and the further business eyes 18 per cent growth in the next five years owing to its successful coalition with global player KörberSupply Chain.

Since the pandemic, the industry has witnessed a significant shift towards adopting automation. In addition to Asia emerging as a development engine for supply chain automation, KörberSupply Chain intends to increase investments in India through its Indian subsidiary, Godrej Körberin, in FY2023. 

Godrej KörberSupply Chain has achieved market growth with increased market share due to their strong collaboration and response to the Make-In-India policies by the government.

Godrej & Boyce and KörberSupply Chain shared their ambitious plan to engineer automated solutions and build a self reliant intralogistics sector in India. The business dominates a market size worth 4000 Crores.
