Castellini, one of the largest distributors of fresh, local and organic produce in the United States and a wholesaler since 1896, has selected Blue Yonder to help transform its warehouse capabilities. Castellini’s long-time business partner, enVista, will provide the implementation services.

Castellini provides produce and floral sourcing and delivery; value-add services like packaging, ripening, and sortation; and warehouse and transportation services. The company delivers the highest quality produce from growers and national brands, including more than 400 organic and more than 1,200 conventional produce items. Castellini is expanding its current supply chain services to provide even more customized offerings and programs to its customers, all the while leveraging its robust regional transportation network to monitor, track, and trace customer products from pick-up to delivery. To meet the growth in demand for these services, the company is in the process of consolidating several of its warehouse locations into one, state-of-the-art facility. As a result, Castellini had outgrown its legacy warehousing system.

By implementing Blue Yonder for end-to-end visibility into its supply chain, Wilder, Kentucky-based Castellini will have greater inventory visibility for its customers, operational improvements, expanded value-added service tracking, and better orchestration of warehouse tasks.

“We chose Blue Yonder to help meet our company’s vision of being an indispensable value at every touchpoint in the supply chain ecosystem. Together with Blue Yonder and enVista we look forward to building and implementing solutions that will help us transform our warehousing capabilities,” said Dan Taylor, chief information officer for Castellini. “Blue Yonder’s solutions will allow us to partner with our customers, growers, and shippers in a more agile, efficient and technologically-advanced way.”

Castellini will deploy Blue Yonder’s warehouse management, warehouse labor management, and warehouse tasking solutions, which are driven by Blue Yonder’s Luminate Platform. Blue Yonder will provide the inventory visibility, optimized coordination of activities and product monitoring Castellini needs to meet customer demands while maintaining profitability.

“The team at Castellini was looking for a way to meet their long-term goals as they transitioned their warehouse model while upholding high levels of produce freshness, while reducing food waste. Blue Yonder will help them achieve this, coupled with elevating their capabilities, business and profitability,” said Terry Turner, president of Americas Retail, Blue Yonder.
