Food Warehouse Management Services
In the Food industry, the margins for error are slim due to the life cycle properties of the products. Besides the usual challenges of a supply chain operation, you also come across specific inventory control issues such as picking stock according to expiration dates, manufacture dates or lot IDs.
In addition, you may also have to check temperature and humidity levels to ensure the quality of your products. Increased accuracy is the basis for running a successful operation and is the goal to ensure ongoing customer satisfaction.
In order to achieve any goal in this industry, supply chain execution software (food WMS) is required. CoreWarehouse’s 3PL WMS cloud-based solutions can empower you to effectively oversee all the twists and turns of your regular operation, plus the added challenges of a Food operation.
Optimization and validation of all transactions can significantly improve your order fulfillment and practices. The ability to manage fulfillment requirements with LIFO, FIFO, and FEFO, and an advanced functionality for customer shelf-life, reduces the risk of sub-par products leaving your warehouse, thus ensuring customer satisfaction.
Catch weight and carton tracking requirements can be supported at the inbound and/or outbound levels with noting of out-of-bounds conditions set at the item level. Receipts and automatic moves of quality controlled products into a blast freezer is another added functionality of CoreWarehouse’s 3PL cloud-based solutions to ensure top quality. A direct receipt from manufacturing or work orders also is supported.
With CoreMobile there is access to all of this real-time information via desktop, tablet or mobile devices. CoreMobile features include receiving, directed putaway, warehouse moves, inventory adjustments, hold/release, picking, QC verification, shipping, cycle counting, and many more real-time features.
