better production planning & dispatch

Monitor orders, assign orders to specific packhouses (you can have unlimited processing sites in farmsoft), and allow micro monitoring of each production lines output requirements using dashboards. The dashboards ensure the correct products are produced at the correct time to fill orders. Dispatch teams are given details on their mobile device (or PC/Mac) and scan pallets onto orders.

Inventory traceability software

The purpose of the Fruit & Vegetables implementation guidance is to provide best practice guidelines for industry-wide adoption for New Item Listing and update of existing assortment. This guide provides support to companies seeking to electronically exchange fruit & vegetable product information in accordance with GS1 Standards. The guidance applies to the full range of fruit & vegetable trade items. The guide outlines which attributes should be used for fruit & vegetable items and recommends best practices for the use of these standards to exchange static fruit & vegetable data between suppliers and retailers. Today, different platforms as well as different means to item identification exist when it comes to data sharing.  Traceability case study for Paramount Citrus, Traceability case study for Mother Earth Organic Mushrooms, SunFed visibility of produce throughout supply chainw tih case and item level traceability.  JemD Farms, greenhouse grower with GS1 Standards and the Produce Traceability Initiative.  

The use of GS1 Standards, specifically for Identification, Master Data Alignment, Traceability, Track and Trace, Barcode labels and EDI transactions, provides a common platform to help supply chain partners share and understand the same information about products and locations. Attributes are used as a means to describing specific information about an item when transacting business. They reflect a certain characteristic about the item such as identifiers, weights, dimensions,
and manufacturer or supplier information. The guide outlines Industry Core Specific, Industry Commodity Required and Target Market attributes
to be used by the Fresh Fruit & Vegetables industry. This guide is platform neutral and can be used with or without third party service providers. Adoption of the guidance offered in this document is voluntary and will be determined by the trading partner relationship. The data model proposed is independent of any means used to exchange this information, the usage of the GDSN Network to exchange this data brings additional benefits to the industry. The guideline
also provides the link between the data attribute and how to use it in the GDSN Network.

Using the Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) is the key to a successful business. As a supplier of fruits and vegetables you need the GTIN to uniquely identify your product. The GTIN is the key to modern electronic business processes. Single components of the GS1 System fit to each other as tools in a
tool box. They can be variously combined. Producers and suppliers are able to optimize their business processes step-by-step using this GS1 tool box.
The GTIN is linked to Attributes which provide specific details of the product. Synchronising complete and accurate data attributes at the beginning of the New Item Listing process will save time and money in the long run. From there, everything else falls into place such as transmitting orders,
despatch advices/ASNs (Advance Shipping Notice) and electronic invoices. Mistakes can be avoided and communication to customers accelerated. All partners in the supply chain gain benefits. There are hundreds of attributes to describe a product but this guide points out attributes necessary
for identifying fruit & vegetable products. We have broken these attributes into 3 sections:
■ Industry Core Attributes – these attributes apply to all Fruit & Vegetable commodities
■ Industry Commodity Required Attributes – attributes specific to a certain products
■ Attributes not used in all Markets – attributes which apply to certain local / regional
requirement or regulations only (e.g. Target Market attributes)
