Century Ply’s Central Distribution Centre


India, January 24, 2022: Century Plyboards (India) Ltd. inaugurated a 35000 sq. feet Central Distribution Centre (CDC) with stocking capacity of 4,00,000 (Four lakhs) sheets of Laminates & Veneers at its Joka plant in West Bengal today. The stocking capacity can be increased further by 50% with redesigning of racking system.

With the start of CDC operations, the overall replenishment time is expected to be reduced by 40%. A press release issued by the company says that due to the faster stock replenishment, the service level at Regional Distribution centers will be maintained above 95%.

One of the biggest advantage of this CDC facility is the equipped modern Warehouse Management System, through which all stocks can be identified and traced in one click. Around 1000 finished goods SKUs will be stocked at the new CDC. This supply re-networking will bring an operational saving of 1 crore annually.

The CDC will help to bring stock visibility across the entire supply chain network.


Speaking on this occasion, Keshav Bhajanka, Executive Director, Century Ply said, “The mission statement of Century Ply has always been to be the best of all and aligning with this goal, we have further taken a significant step towards increasing customer satisfaction by coming up with the single largest distribution centre for laminates in India. The CDC, that is going to be established in our Joka manufacturing unit in Kolkata will have State-of-the-art infrastructure, which is going to be driven by one of the most technologically advanced supply chain algorithms, a pioneering movement in our industry.”
