A comparison of handling systems for fresh tomatoes from packing plant to retail store



Marketing Research Report, Agricultural Marketing Service, US Department of Agriculture (MRR-1111): 23



Labour, equipment, and materials costs were developed for 12 systems of handling, transporting, and delivering fresh tomatoes. The systems included four tomato handling methods (handstacked, palletized, pallet-pool, and slipsheet) from the packing plant to wholesale warehouses, three systems (handstacked, palletized, and mobile carts) for handling tomatoes from wholesaler to retailer, and one system used in the retail store.
