Marco systems can give 30% more fresh cut productivity

Marco’s fresh produce Yield Control System (YCM) and Average Weight System have been specifically designed to meet the challenges faced by today’s pack houses. The systems’ features and functionality are a result of direct feedback from major growers and packers around the world.

A system like this is ideal for the fresh-cut industry because by deskilling the manual packing process, measuring individual packer performance productivity can be increased by up to 30% and giveaway/overpack will be virtually eliminated.

This increased efficiency may manifest itself in terms of improvements in pack house throughput, reduction in labour overheads or improved labour deployment. Other savings can be made in terms of reduced training requirements. Savings start from the minute the YCM system is turned on and return on investment is typically a few months or within one season.

Significant reductions in over-pack and waste represent a large saving. In parallel the system provides the ability to control and monitor large bodies of relatively low-skilled labour. This provides performance accountability for each and every operator, representing an important saving to businesses. For companies airfreighting goods long distances, reducing giveaway can have a major impact on their freight costs.
Marco has just launched a series of free guide books which discuss all the major challenges facing modern pack houses and how these can be overcome with tried and tested techniques. They include system endorsements from leading figures in the global fresh produce arena.
