Once packaged, the focus is turned to shipping, where customer satisfaction continues to influence every decision. Full cartons are stamped with a serialized barcode for traceability and a conveyance system scans barcodes for correct sortation. Robotic palletizers gently stack cases on pallets, which are stretch-wrapped. Fruit is stored in a rack system that leaves air gaps for proper airflow and temperature management.


Forklifts are fitted with computers and barcode scanners to track movement of goods throughout the warehouse and ensure the proper fruit is selected for each order. Quality control inspectors verify grading standards by inspecting random cases before loading in an effort to maintain the consistency of the Independent label that has long been a driving force in Washington Fruit’s success.
