We’re able to box typically-sized protein cuts of pork, beef, poultry, and other traditional proteins that come to us in combos weighing 1000-2000lbs. Generally the combo packaging itself won’t support higher weights without becoming damaged during transportation, and should a combo arrive damaged then we must reject it. Should you have outsized or overweight requests then simply contact us and we will find a solution.

Warehouse Management Systems manage common operations such as inventory control, customer orders, and auditing whereas Warehouse Execution Systems are typical in facilities with moderate-to-heavy levels of automation. The WES generally interfaces with the WMS to organize and optimize the flow of work required to assemble and ship orders. In addition, the WES interfaces with the automation controls to execute the work – it’s the WES that controls the robots!
