"Product has benefitted from the ability to increase chilling time and better control the cold chain. Our concern with space utilization has also been addressed. This system gives us a way to provide our employees a safer working environment while providing our customers with the highest quality product possible."

Case Study Focus: Fresh Food Packaging & Distribution
Key System Solutions: Production Systems, Palletizing, Carton Delivery
Product Handled: Fresh Vegetables & Packaged Fresh Fruit

 

This company is a major force in fresh fruit and vegetable processing, offering more than 100 retail and foodservice products to customers. Each year, the company packages millions of pounds of vegetables and fruit. With such a large operation, the company relies Gravity Roller Conveyor on Hytrol to quickly and efficiently move fresh vegetables through its facility.

Prior to the firm's decision to install a Hytrol conveyor system, all staging, packing, and movement of boxes was done manually. Boxes were manually filled on fixed packing tables, then stacked onto pallets and the pallets were hauled away with pallet jacks.

Realizing a conveyor system could move the boxes much more efficiently, the company contacted a long-time Hytrol Integration Partner. They worked with the company to provide the perfect solution to their material handling issues.

Their main goal was to transport packed boxes from the current production room to the new product skidding area where boxes are manually palletized. Additionally, the company wanted to plan for the transportation of full boxes from the future production area and deliver empty boxes to the pack stations.

Live Roller ConveyorThe company reports that the new Hytrol system has resulted in a safer, uncluttered production and packing area. Also, the finished product can now be palletized in a 34 degree environment, thus increasing shelf life.

"Since the installation of this system, product has benefitted from the ability to increase chilling time and better control the cold chain. Our concern with space utilization has also been addressed. This system gives us a way to provide our employees a safer working environment while providing our customers with the highest quality product possible."

Today, the "new" order delivery system ships over 90 trucks a day in two shifts with orders ranging from 1 SKU per truck to completely mixed products, often all on pallets. Some orders only have hours or minutes to be satisfied from the time the right product arrives from the box sealers.
