Overview

Increasingly, produce distributors are realizing the potential rewards of establishing a manufacturing department within the warehouse to address the value added market for customized produce packaging and labeling. Our Fresh Pack Work Order Processing system allows managers to track and allocate inventory and costs throughout the manufacturing process. A work order bill of material (BOM) is generated that allocates, tracks and calculates inventory quantities and costs for finished goods created from component raw materials.
