We show the entire process for multiple products. In the order of inbound, storage, processing, weighing and packaging, palletizing and dispatch. Components as the industrial doors for the cooling chambers, dust extraction and water purification are also been highlighted.
We explain in details the product flow of vegetables, potatoes and fruits from field to the end user. We make it clear who the four stake holders are of a DC. Also a survey of potential clients is given. Some important developments in the distribution as: loss of food world wide, increasing rapid urbanisation and the global growth of population are taken into consideration.
We make clear the funtions of a Distribution Center in the value chain of food. How to make the market more transparant with a modern DC. Furthermore growing awareness of food safety, a strive to produce more sustainable and the need of tracebility of the goods are pin pointed.
Data management should be the back bone of any modern DC or Supply Management System. We defined four different Stake holders in a DC that will generate data and needs information. The four stake holders are: suppliers,investors or operators,clients and end users of the DC. Not all data are equally important for the four different stakeholders. That’s why we want to provide the ability to filter all the information needed.
