CSi, the Dutch supplier of intelligent product handling systems, is making sure that one of its clients in France is able to increase its output capacity to 770 pallets by the hour – seven days a week and 24hr a day. The client is one of the largest producers in the world for fast moving consumer goods and in particular fabric and home care products. The value of the order amounts to about €6m. The complete project will be delivered this year.

Technically the project concerns the transport of pallets from the production lines through a long tunnel into the warehouse and then transport to loading docks for automatic truck loading. In this system about ten pallet elevators and over 70 transfers are included. Because of the amount of pallets, the diversity of the products and the distribution planning, this project is an extremely complex project, especially in the field of control.

This customer and CSi boast a long relationship in the field of internal transport and palletising. Twelve years ago CSi supplied the old system and the reliability of this system as well as CSi’s important role in the system design have been the basis for the order of this new system with CSi.

So after an intensive preliminary stage the customer is convinced that CSi is the only one to be able to handle such a complex project successfully.
