The CHS tracks cartons from the sorter and distributes them to different destinations within the packhouse for palletizing and shipping. These intelligent systems can manage multiple boxes, products and destinations simultaneously. CHS integrates with the Compac Pack Printing system to automate carton labelling and data transfer to your ERP system for traceability, compliance and stock control.  

Compac’'s pallet handling solutions improve efficiency. Our robotics ensure efficient and safe transportation of pallets around the packhouse, especially for high volume operations.

Data & Analytics

data

Compac'’s data and integration solutions track and record all stonefruit as they cross the sorter and move through the packhouse. This information can then be shared with other packhouse systems such as ERP, traceability systems and carton printing applications. Reports on the performance of your operation can be generated, allowing you to feed this information back into your operation, making changes to optimize efficiency.  

We also facilitate remote sampling of various grades and sizes of stonefruit for packhouse quality control.
