Blue Link ERP is excited to be recognized by Food Logistics’ 2021 Top Software & Technology Providers Award for our food and beverage distribution software. Managing and tracking expiry dates and lot numbers is important to ensure the best quality goods are going out at the appropriate time.  Especially when dealing with refrigerated items, warehouse management plays a large factor in how quickly an order is able to move out.  In the cold food and beverage industry, zone picking assigns order pickers to a specific warehouse zone who are then responsible for picking all the SKU’s located in that particular zone for any given order. Managing lot numbers with Blue Link’s ERP software is useful as it allows for the picker to become very familiar with the product and their zone and thus reduced pick times.

We want to thank and congratulate the other vendors on the list who contribute to the safety and support of the cold food and beverage industry. See below for the full press release.

“Software developments and emerging technologies are what make the world go ‘round. They’re what make supply chains move, even when the world stops. They’re what keeps people, products and plants safe. They provide traceability, visibility, efficiency and credibility. And, the winners from this year’s award prove that there are no limitations to what software and technology can do in the supply chain space,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
