Packed with Flavour: Why Packing is Important for Fruit Shipping

Efficient packing is essential for these sensitive goods. Using the appropriate materials, handling processes, storage solutions and temperature controls help to ensure fruit shipments reach their destination in optimal condition. Proper fruit packing solutions prevent spoilage and damage, and by extension minimize waste and ensure customer satisfaction.

Core functions & output


Packing facilities are primarily focused on preparing goods for shipment. Equipped with specialized machinery, they are dedicated to the efficient and accurate processing of goods, ensuring items are inspected and repackaged before they are distributed to consumers.

Warehouses, however, are primarily focused on storing goods before shipment. With minimal processing equipment, they focus on efficient storage, inventory management and order fulfilment.


Zestful operations


The main task of packing houses in the fruit industry is to receive goods and prepare them for shipment. They do this by sorting, grading, cleaning, packaging, and labelling items. In the context of fruit packing, this may include activities like slicing, juicing or peeling goods before packaging them into retail-friendly and consumer-ready containers.

Warehouse activities include receiving goods, storing them securely, managing inventory levels, picking, and packing orders and some basic quality control checks.


Peelers and packers, equipment & resources


Packing facilities and warehouses also differ in their equipment needs and infrastructure. Packing houses are equipped with an array of specialized machinery and resources to facilitate the smooth and efficient processing of goods. Sorting and grading systems, workstations, washers, labelling machines, and packaging materials like bubble wrap, boxes, and tape are essential components in packing facility operations.

Warehouses are equipped with racks, shelves, pallets, forklifts, AGVs, cranes and equipment needed to facilitate the efficient storage of goods. Their layout is designed to prioritize the efficient movement of goods while also maximizing storage space.
