Greens Redbeet of Soham Invest in Dexterity WMS
Greens Redbeet of Soham, contract processors of Beetroot are to implement Dexterity WMS to track and manage the Inventory, Order Processing and Distribution of Beetroot at their site in Soham, Cambridgeshire. Their storage facilities include 15,000 tonnes of beetroot storage, both as a mix of refrigerated and ambient product.
A major challenge for food processing businesses is traceability and for Greens they have to be able to trace the finished processed product back to the field it was harvested from. Currently this is achieved with paperwork and of course spreadsheets and it takes an enormous amount of time and effort to manually record and update on a daily basis.
Dexterity WMS due for implementation in April 2015 will bring automation to the whole process including the management and tracking all product from bulk receipt from harvest through processing to pick and ship to the customer, tracking the product back to the field it was grown in.
