An automated transport system offers a solution for flexible, fast and precise cultivation. Thanks to our many years of worldwide experience with logistical cultivation systems, we have realised components that together form one efficient, custom-made, automated system.
energy and labour costs
The Container Transport System (CTS) is a combination of various components to move, pick up, spread, examine crops, wash or move containers and deliver products for sorting, packaging and transport.
All our facilities are custom-made. Labour costs and conditions, space utilisation, tracking & tracing options, crop type and requirements are key principles during the design. We integrate everything into one seamless system, which is controlled by our sister company Indigo’s own control systems and software. These systems are frequently used in phenotyping activities by crop science companies and agricultural universities.
Examples of machines that belong to the CTS are; the innovative Sandwichwasser, which handles two containers at the same time, and the Container Transport Robot, which is attached to the greenhouse facade and thus makes even better use of the available space. In addition, the installation can consist of the container/top stacker, mobile pick-up and spacer robots, flail conveyors, container conveyor lifts, conveyor belts and pusher conveyors.
