Fresh Direct supplies caterers, independent chefs and fine dining restaurants with fresh produce picked to order and delivered daily from its warehouse at Bicester.
Thanks to increased demand, the firm needed to install a new conveying and packing system and it chose Conveyor Systems (CSL) for the job.
To remove waste and keep the packaging area clear, CSL designed and installed two automatic waste removal belt conveyors to feed and transport waste to a collection point for recycling. Another belt provided a flow of packed orders to palletising and dispatch.
Colin Harris, operations director of Fresh Direct says: "Prior to the installation of the new system, we manually picked product from racking and shelving to fulfil orders. CSL has provided a conveying and packing system that has increased efficiencies, improved order picking times and given us the capacity to meet increased demand for our services with the same number of staff."
