The smart way forward

HORTILOGICS is powered by:

Berg Hortimotive

Berg Hortimotive is a renowned producer of machines for daily cultivation activities and of systems that optimize logistical processes in greenhouses. This company was the pioneers of the pipe rail trolley. Nowadays, it is recognized as an innovator and full-service supplier in the ongoing progress of smart greenhouse logistics. 

KOAT

KOAT develops and supplies machines and systems for internal transport and product processing in horticultural businesses and packing stations. The company combines self-developed products with third-party components to create high-quality, end-to-end processing and packaging lines in the post-harvest process.

HortiKey

HortiKey develops and delivers data-related solutions that provide management with early insight into their business processes and output. Data collection and analysis are the foundation of accurate crop forecasting and efficient organizations. These are indispensable components for a producer to make a structural contribution to a resilient, transparent fresh produce chain. 

Crux Agribotics

Worldwide sales and service network

Global Footprint

How does it work in practice?
HORTILOGICS is your Full-Service Partner, unburdening its clients, such as growers, packing stations, investors and greenhouse builders, and offering them guaranteed result. The turnkey approach fits in seamlessly with this concept. This means that the producer has a single point of contact, and only one contract and service-level agreement for the entire project.

Future proof roadmap

HORTILOGICS and its founding partners believe in smart, data-driven solutions and the growing added value of robotics and artificial intelligence for horticultural producers and logistics partners in fresh produce chains. Connectivity does not end with tracking & tracing and remote sensing, but also involves a growing flow of data exchange and data traffic within and between businesses. Based on this vision, HORTILOGICS provides user-friendly and future-proof solutions that are scalable and easy to expand and link to other (automated) systems. 

Experienced project management

Early involvement in new construction or renovation results in correct choices and an efficient process. HORTILOGICS targets to be involved in applications at the earliest possible stage. Our experienced project managers develop requirements and wishes into complete and concrete specifications, coordinate the implementation with external and internal parties, evaluate the progress and handle the service contract after delivery. 

Service

Our founding partners’ extensive worldwide network and presence ensure that HORTILOGICS is always close to its customers and to local parties that contribute to the realization and system maintenance.

Our service contracts are based on planned (preventive) maintenance by local specialists, 24/7 emergency service and spare parts management. Where possible, we work with our own engineers or certified local partners who are available on call.
