Tracking To The Right POD System In Food DistributionSource: Intermec, Inc.
The food industry is like no other. The distribution process through the supply chain must be timelier, more efficient and more accurate than nearly any other industry. If that was not enough challenge the food distributors have the daunting task in today's economy of not only complying with food industry regulations but also efficiently operating large fleets, managing a mobile workforce, and keep an eye on all important customer service quality.
An important piece of the mobile distribution solution that makes much of this possible is a quality Proof of Delivery (POD) system. A POD system will not only increase accuracy in deliveries, but also ensure traceability of products which is especially important to the perishables industry in the event of a recall due to contamination, an e-coli outbreak or passed expiration dates. By implementing an advanced, cohesive POD system, you will take advantage of technological advancements that you may not even know exist and work toward compliance with the Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI).
