Solutions for the food chain

Rental, automation and sustainability

The food industry is responsible for all processes related to the food chain, which includes transport, reception, storage, processing, preservation and food service for human or animal consumption. The great variety of raw materials and final product requires customised services for each activity. The sector is evolving towards the production process automation and less polluting technologies.

GAM is a comprehensive supplier that provides the different services that each activity requires to optimise its resources. Process automation optimises the available resources and as a leader in the sector, GAM is up-to-date with all the necessary requirements for export, the destination of a significant part of production.

Automations and AGVs in food

Automatic guided vehicles enable efficient automation of repetitive tasks that do not add value such as unloading raw materials, pallet storage and retrieval in the warehouse, moving materials to the production line and from the end of the line and loading finished product. Read more

They can also handle food transport operations in unfriendly environments for the operator such as cold storage areas, freezers, drying ovens, salty or oily areas and ripening rooms.

Drone engineering

Drone engineering has different applications throughout the food chain and is an efficient tool for carrying out volumetric work for stockpiles and bulk, as well as inspecting structures and confined spaces (tanks, silos, pipes, etc.). The multiple applications of this technology enable efficient data collection and access to hard-to-reach areas with greater safety.

Most common needs of the Agri-Food Industry

Primary food moves millions of perishable materials, with machines that work every day of the week on different shifts. Service reliability is key to not losing the merchandise. GAM supplies reserve machines, 24-hour technical service and minimum response times. Also, the rental service provides machines immediately and flexibly for the different campaigns. Read more

GAM has the highest certification in safety and prevention. It is the only company in the sector with ISO 45001 and it is up-to-date with all the necessary regulations for export permits.

PRODUCTION: The equipment in production is the most critical of the entire process. The raw material does not stop coming into the factories, as scheduled by the needs of the end customers, and any breakdown in this equipment can block production or collapse the storage areas. GAM supplies handlers, loaders and forklifts, for which buckets, turners and forks are needed. Read more

LOGISTICS: Demand forklifts with electric motorisation for indoors and diesel or LPG for outdoors. Stackers are also frequently used for positioning and transferring bigbags under flour and feed filling hoppers and, to a lesser extent, pallet jacks.

LIFTING: electric scissors and electric articulated platforms.

INDUSTRIAL CLEANING: electric sweepers and scrubbers of different sizes for accompanying and seated operators, depending on the surface, floor type and waste type on each floor.

Primary activity, fruit and vegetable and initial transformation

Most customers are active all year round, they link crops and can also work with greenhouses. The first phase is collection from the farm or greenhouse, with jobs that require all-terrain forklifts, handlers and agricultural tractors. For large areas, generator sets may also be needed.

In a second phase, in which the material reaches the cooperatives' warehouses, indoor electrical machinery is used, such as forklifts, triple-mast forklifts, and operator-on-foot and platform pallet jacks. Cold rooms often require reinforced power using generators.

Distribution, transformation and packaging

Electric or gas forklifts, indoor machinery and generator sets.

Animal feed

Includes pet food and livestock feed. This subsector demands more varied equipment such as loaders, handlers, electric and diesel forklifts, indoor machinery, and generator sets. The type of merchandise handled is usually supplied in bulk, big bags, sacks and drums
