Hello, 

 

I am updating the Glass Registry at my facility. The current program does not include all [or even most] the glass & plastic in the facility. We are a distributor with AIB Standards. There is a potential of moving towards a GFSI standard in the future, so I want to "future proof" the program as much as possible to lighten the load for program modifications if we do change standards. 

 

My question: Am I supposed to include the glass for the product we distribute?

 

We have many products that are in a glass jar/container. They are in their cases. It would be nearly impossible to keep up with which products have glass containers at a given time because this is a fast pace warehouse that has product coming and going quickly through the warehouse. Sometimes the items may not be in the same location that they were in before due to space limitations. For example, if one product's inventory [X] was completely distributed, a new product [Y] may be put in that place because it is open space. If we receive more of the product X, it may/probably will be placed in another location in the facility that has space. How would I include them in the program?

 

Thank you

We have food storage/distribution/3PL facilities as clients - I would suggest having a combo glass and brittle plastic register.

 

Also, in answer to your question, no you would not inventory the glass containers of product contained in boxes for distribution on your register.

 

You do however need to have a glass breakage policy/procedure in place in the event of an issue with a broken case/box, etc.

Thank you! :) 

This helps me out quite a bit. I was getting a headache thinking about how I would incorporate everything. 

I appreciate it!
