The short answer: master the art of individual box tracking with ColumbusFood.   Some manufacturers use boxes in combination with lot numbers to tell when it was produced in the day’s production run. Box tracking is often seen as a requirement in the dairy and meat industries. I can guess your questions; why would I box track? Why does it make a difference? Box tracking allows the manufacturer to assign individual box IDs and weights. The output of boxes may have the same weight and by using a box ID you see whether it was produced in the beginning, middle or end of the production run. It'll also allow the user to track a box throughout the process. The user can track a box in the warehouse, if it's on a container, loose or not open at all. All aspects of the process can use box tracking, production, warehouse and sales.
