Supply and demand in seven locations tuned to each other flawlessly.
Seven locations, one automated system
Greenco was the first grower in the Netherlands that presented snack tomatoes, small cucumbers and miniature peppers. By now the cups of Tommies and Fred & Ed are a familiar sight in Dutch and foreign supermarkets. Greenco is even in the top five of best tomato growers in the world, so they have a reputation to uphold. Everything revolves around perfect traceability of products, quality guarantee and fast delivery for which real-time insight and reliable prognoses are crucial.
From harvest to delivery
From harvest to delivery: recently, the entire logistics process has been coordinated by and registered with Vanboxtel’s Warehouse Management System (WMS). All movement of the vegetables and packaging in the six growing locations and central production is scanned and recorded. If a pallet with an end product is ready, it receives a barcode containing the buyer’s information. This not only provides insight into all harvest data and sales numbers, but also provides traceability for all products.
Prognosis and reality side by side
Thanks to the WMS’ tracking & tracing functionality, the prognoses and actual numbers are now always clearly presented side by side. Supply and demand are tuned to each other flawlessly so that Greenco can react to changes quickly. Is the harvest smaller than required? Then it is possible to buy externally quickly. And vice versa: in case of a surplus, immediate action is taken and nothing is thrown away any more. This allows Greenco to work more efficiently with a higher turnover ratio, and with guaranteed quality at all times.
