Japanese food wholesaler improves warehouse efficiency

Japanese food wholesaler Harro Foods has improved stock management and traceability after introducing Chess Logistics Techology’s Empirica warehouse management system.

The software has been integrated with the company’s accounting package to facilitate the use of historic and current data, enhance customer service and streamline internal processes.

“We can now function as a warehouse should function,” said Branwyn Darlington, general manager for logistics at Harro Foods. “Best-before dates and first-in, first-out stock turns are really key to us as a food supplier and we were beginning to struggle without a proper system. Now we have a solution that supports our business and the way we want to work.”

Harro Foods has supplied Japanese food products to restaurants, hotels, retailers and wholesalers throughout the UK for more than 20 years.
