The introduction of automation of the cutting-edge warehouse management system Carton Cloud has meant that we can keep up with the latest demands from our customers through its flexibility, scalability, and a 360-degree view of our operations. Moreover, Carton Cloud has allowed APF to expand its offerings to include value-added services such as barcode, specialising in GS1-128, scan and integration in order to increase our warehouse fulfilment efficiency and traceability.
