Challenge: An e-commerce retailer was planning to build a facility around automated technology, and the operation required a flexible and scalable picking solution that could accommodate a highly diverse inventory of materials. The company also had strict fulfillment and shipping deadlines that depended upon high order accuracy.
Foodborne illnesses can spread quickly. A recent example is that of a batch of listeria-contaminated eggs causing one death and seven reported infections across five states. In many ways, the world of food supply chains is encapsulated in this tragedy. The contamination occurred in a single facility in Gainesville, Georgia, but resulted in products from more than 30 brands being pulled from the shelves and recalled. Grocery chains affected included Trader Joe’s, Costco, Lidl, Walmart and Kroger. Download this report today on how technology will boost transparency in food distribution.
Importers and domestic manufacturers who sell goods to retailers face an increasingly complex landscape of consumer demands and brand positioning, as the balance between e-commerce and brick-and-mortar sales continues to shift.
In the battle to make their product more attractive to consumers, packaging is a crucial element. Many turn to third-party packaging and co-packing service providers to gain the edge.
