Agriculture in the modern age is developing at a rapid pace. A steadily increasing global population and shifting trade policies are having a significant impact on the supply chain and delivery of food products.
Today, we are facing challenges around food production to meet the demands of an ever growing, massive population. The UN Food and Agriculture Organization predicts that we need to boost worldwide food production by 70 percent over the next several decades in order to feed the anticipated population of 2050.
When handling perishable produce, speed-of-delivery, airborne illness prevention and reducing waste is paramount. Time and proper planning is of the essence where the majority of perishables have a critically short turnaround time between being harvested and being delivered to the store. If a warehouse isn’t where it should be in terms of efficiency, planning and system integration, significant problems can arise including waste, loss of profitability and at worst – bacterial contamination.
With the correct warehouse planning and implementation, vulnerabilities can be mitigated and avoided. Twinlode Automation has the experience to source the correct solution for any project, and has vision for scalable operations as they expand and contract.
Automation is a growing trend across multiple industries, and agriculture is no exception. These growing demands on the industry are being met by labor shortages and rising costs for farm work. In the face of these challenges, farmers are turning to technology to make their operations more efficient.
There is a pressing need to bring technology and agriculture together, to set the tone in the development of autonomous farming and bring products to market faster. Twinlode Automation is prepared to meet that need.
For more than 30 years, Twinlode Automation has provided storage solutions for warehouse management within the agriculture industry. Its complete storage solutions continue to help trim warehouse expenses and reduce handling costs, ultimately increasing productivity.
In the first half of 2019, Twinlode Automation worked with a large grower and processor of produce with headquarters in the U.S. and farms across the country and Mexico. This food processing company needed a complex system put in place that would help reduce waste, streamline its product transfer system and improve processing times.
Projects like these and many more demonstrate Twinlode Automation’s dedication to elevating its automation practice as the material handling and agriculture industries evolve.
