The recent Food Logistics article “3PL Compliance: If You Fail to Plan, Then Plan to Fail” features the President of Holman Logistics discussing the ways technology can help 3PLs manage recall issues in the food supply chain, particularly in a challenging time such as the current pandemic.
Downie says, “In our world, we have three critical technologies: warehouse management systems (WMS), electronic data interchange (EDI), and Internet-of-Things (IoT) sensors, all of which help us maintain tight control over what goes in and out of our facilities and keep customer product within specified customer conditions… Holman recently invested in a highly capable WMS, ensuring that not only are we able to properly rotate product according to customer specifications, but also that we can export the data in a user-friendly format, helping us live up to our promise of extraordinary service.”
Addressing the ways Holman uses IoT, Downie comments, “Holman has custom built several digitally calibrated temperature sensors that are connected to our information management system. These IoT sensors automatically alert our team to potential issues, ensuring quick response times when temperatures approach specified thresholds.”
