Material Flow Control


  • Real-time communication ensures that crates are sent to their destination at high speed
  • Barcode or RFID readers ensure that the introduction of the final coordinates suffices
  • Automated arrangement of crate flows and crate sequence for a continuous coordination between the flow and changing production situations
  • Timely control, so no waiting time for the employees
  • The product quickly arrives in conditioned spaces, for optimum quality and shelf life


Marel Food Logistic Systems has developed the Material Flow Control System, which allows the fully automated transport of crates of products to the correct location within your company. The Material Flow Control System translates the command of project-specific criteria to a physical crate transport command, and then executes this command.

The system has an interface to the Marel Warehouse Management System, but it can also be integrated into production control systems of third parties. This is a proven technology; the integration has been successfully applied to many projects.

Extensive logging and diagnostic features provide the user continuous insight into the current status and availability of the plant, thus significantly increasing your efficiency thanks to Marel Material Flow Systems.
