Project C.J. Vianen
C.J. Vianan Flowerexport is a key player in the market. The range of cut flowers, foliage and related products is very diverse.
Each day, thousands of freshly cut flowers and foliage are processed. And the product range also includes plants. So clients can opt for one-stop-shopping with one and the same supplier.
C.J. Vianen started out exporting to England, but other European countries have been in the list of destinations for many years. C.J. Vianen now supplies to Dutch customers too. Customers order via the webshop whenever it suits them.
To cope with the pressure and volumes for processing and packing flowers and plants, C.J. Vianen has purchased a new distribution and packaging conveyor system from Van Rijn.
Flowers and plants in various types and sizes of flower containers, boxes and trays are fed onto the transport and distributed via a scanner based conveyor system to the work stations and roll container stacking areas.
To increase reliability, we have installed the latest camera based scanning system with four cameras reading the barcodes from all directions. Advanced software processes the barcodes to control the whole process.
The entire transport line features a range of specialized equipment:
- A pressureless buffer system to guide the various packaging units around the system.
- Various ergonomic for packing stations.
- A long sorter with many compact and safe arms to direct the many different types of packaging to the right exits for the various roll container stacking areas.
- A turning and water-disposal system to collect the flower containers and return them empty for stacking in carts.
What our clients say
We started working with Van Rijn because they have a smart way to create a compact system, which meant that we could make the changes we wanted and increase our efficiency. Van Rijn’s experience in the flower sector has resulted in a good system with reliable machines that require little maintenance. The advanced camera system enables us to process even the hard to read products properly.
