Why Food Companies Need Mobile Inventory to Survive – Food Logistics, September 2021


El Dorado Hills, California — September 25, 2021

With the unprecedented strains on the food and beverage industry, caused by COVID-19-related shutdowns and demand shifts, the industry had to adapt quickly to survive. Food companies are still recoiling from these strains on the supply chain and are realizing increased issues with their inventory management. Add to that new challenges due to smaller workforces, and you have businesses that must pivot fast. What they should pivot to is mobile inventory.

Mobile inventory addresses food companies concerned with worker shortages, increased regulations, and multi-industry supply chain issues. Food production companies have no choice but to automate. The practice of automating current processes allows organizations to save time and money. In addition, it keeps the food production industry ahead of the curve by facilitating maximum operational agility.

In the linked Food Logistics article, RFgen President and CTO, Robert Brice, provides valuable insight about how food companies can benefit from mobile barcoding and data collection as well as his take on these current trends benefitting the food and beverage industry including:
