We’re seeing a real boost in productivity because our people aren’t slowed down by equipment that’s cumbersome and unreliable. Having seen the accuracy and reliability, we’re now eager to roll this out to more of our facilities.

RESULTS

Troy Schenk, Dot Foods’ Director of Automation, believes that Dot was able to build a better facility because of Barcoding. “Our greenfield project was a success in large part because of the monitoring technology Barcoding recommended and set up. We’re seeing a real boost in productivity because our people aren’t slowed down by equipment that’s cumbersome and unreliable. Having seen the accuracy and reliability, we’re now eager to roll this out to more of our facilities.”

In addition to productivity improvement, the Barcoding solution is helping Dot comply with cold chain transport codes (such as the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act, or FSMA) and food safety regulations— and avoid any associated fines. Dot is also realizing these benefits since implementing Barcoding’s solution:

  • Properly maintained temperatures within trailers has decreased cargo waste and resulted in fewer rejected/spoiled loads
  • Because manual temperature monitoring is eliminated, driver downtime and costly idling have decreased significantly
  • Setpoint temperature consistency is leading to streamlined handoffs and minimizing the time trailers spend at loading docks; this improved utilization, turn times, and tractor-to-trailer ratios are expected to improve profitability
