For the large distribution center of Scherpenhuizen for storage, packaging, grouping, sorting, labeling and repackaging of fruit and vegetables, ARCO has provided the entire logistics facility. In order to achieve optimal design for the entire installation, it took eight months to complete the engineering phase of the project. In the distribution center from over 40,000 square meters, ARCO assembled the process lines, for both full and empty crates, together with already existing packaging lines. Whether it is storage, groupage, packaging, sorting, labeling or repackaging, everything goes through automated solutions developed by ARCO.

Following the above-mentioned proceslines, ARCO also developed solutions for pallet handling, pallet lifts and transportation towards the pallet box cleaner. At special request of Scherpenhuizen, ARCO developed some new machines, such as the big box tilters and big box stackers. ARCO delivers the entire installation on turn-key basis.

In addition to the fact that everything was newly built, ARCO integrated already existing machines into the proces lines. Now old and new works perfectly work together.

ERP system

All new and existing machines, including the process lines, are controlled by PLC controllers and via an intermediate shell connected to the ERP system (GDE) of Scherpenhuizen. This connection enables Scherpenhuizen to automatic planning and it also provides insight into capacity, process speed and machine and operator performance. This gives Scherpenhuizen full insight on their Key Performance Indicators.
