Efficient, end-to-end tracking and tracing for frozen foods: the detail is in the label

For restaurant chains, quality assurance is vital. For a highly specialized logistics company like HAVI Logistics GmbH who supplies all the European restaurants of probably the most well-known foodservice retailer in the world several times a week with food and non-food items, it is an absolute must. As is end-to-end tracking and tracing of goods from arrival at the logistics company through to delivery to the restaurant branch. To this end, goods are digitally logged at HAVI Logistics and all relevant information is stored on a barcode label. The company wanted to use just one type of label throughout so they needed one that would remain securely adhered in all three of its storage areas. The company also wanted to be able to remove the barcode label without it leaving a residue because sometimes the labels are applied to returnable containers. With Neuss-based system integrator Rodata GmbH, HAVI Logistics finally found the right solution — and the right partner for the "special label".
