At Washington Cold Storage, we understand the strict requirements related to the dating, tracking and tracing of the products we store in our facilities.
Our online inventory is an important amenity to many of the customers who choose to partner with us. Many of our customers must have instant access to a real-time count of products in storage, while compliance with government regulations on the shelf life of perishable goods is another important concern. Our online portal provides peace of mind on both fronts.
We are also sensitive to the special requirements of our customers related to the mixing of certain products when receiving goods into storage. Product labeling is clear and visible — both in the warehouse and online — allowing for quick picking and accurate tracking. We process orders as directed – FIFO, LIFO or otherwise — and order processing itself is streamlined for ease of use.
Comprehensive Traceability Online
Our online inventory tracking system is powered by Datex and can be accessed by our customers via a login page that is linked in the navigation menu on our website. This warehouse management system offers an audit trail that allows for comprehensive traceability, and it features crossdock and transload data on the same screen, which reduces errors and saves time. Customized screens allow users to view the information they need to see, and the interface is user friendly.
Online tracking features also provide the necessary tools to document every detail of a product’s handling in our care, which helps customers comply with important recordkeeping required by the Food Safety Modernization Act.
We hope and believe the measures we have taken to simplify order processing and trace products give our customers the tools they need to coordinate logistics and comply with every requirement. If you have any questions about our amenities or partnering with us to store your goods, please contact us today.
