The Client & Decision
Upper Lakes Foods is a family-owned distributor serving restaurants, schools, and institutions from two distribution centers in Minnesota. As ULF grew its business with national restaurant chains, the DC teams faced new pressure to improve quality and efficiency.
After extensive research of voice and RF technology, the leadership at ULF landed on Lucas FoodSelect, the only solution specifically designed for foodservice DCs. With Lucas mobile applications working on multi-modal terminals, workers can either voice- or scan-in product data, depending what makes sense for the task at hand. Upper Lakes is using FoodSelect for picking, putaway, replenishment, and loading.
