For Washington Fruit & Produce, Co., one of Washington state’s largest shippers of apples, maintaining the most effective technology possible for distribution center (DC) operations is a constant requirement.

The company, which recently moved into a brand new state-of-the-art packaging and storage facility in Yakima, Wash., identified a need for a more streamlined pallet tagging and inventory management system that would not only help streamline daily operations, but also provide them with compliance to new food traceability initiatives required by the U.S. Government.

They engaged with Pacific iD, a technology solution provider, to recommend and install a completely new hardware system for their DC operations that would offer improved inventory management and accuracy, increase operational efficiency and increase throughput.
