The materials flow at ProMessa has been automated – from packaging following production, to storage and picking, and loading onto trucks.
In the past, goods and crates were moved manually, whereas today, robotic technology, conveyor systems, sorters and the CSB software work together.
The software organises and monitors a network of machines, including two automatic crate storages, robot units, four automatic weigh labelling lines with connected sorters, a dispatch warehouse and a conveyor system.
Integrated production scheduling ensures precise tuning of workflows in terms of time and quantity. Any important details, such as up-to-date order, production and inventory data, are captured and processed in real time. T
“We deliver a vast range of products to about 1,200 supermarkets,” said ProMessa’s managing director Harold Rouweler. “The logistics system helps us to pick and deliver even small quantities in an efficient manner.
“We have nearly doubled our output – sometimes to more than 100,000 packages per day,” he continues. “We would never have achieved such growth rates without the new logistics system, which was established in the existing buildings without any major staff increase.”
