Fortune 100 technology company Honeywell International Inc. (NASDAQ: HON) announced on Monday that one of the largest suppliers of fresh and frozen produce and fruit in the Midwest has deployed the company’s mobile computers, tablets, and software to help its mobile workers pick, pack and ship perishables.

One of the oldest produce companies in the country, the Castellini Company, has deployed Honeywell's CK65 and CT40 mobile computers, its VM1 vehicle-mounted computers and RT10 tablets. These portable devices are all based on Honeywell's Mobility Edge platform, which is designed to extend asset life, accelerate deployment and simplify management of mobility solutions.

Castellini will use Honeywell's Operational Intelligence Professional software, a centralized cloud-based platform that enables it to keep track of its new devices, manage their operational status and reduce unplanned downtime to give customers an even more trusted, reliable service. Honeywell will provide on-demand support to the Castellini Company, serving as a single point of contact for ongoing mobility device management and help desk support and transports perishables to some of the largest retail grocery chains, food service distributors, and home delivery services in the United States.

In a media release detailing this news for investors, Brian Kocher, president and CEO of the Castellini Group of Companies, said that to keep up with customer demand and a rapidly-changing environment, his team was looking to use the latest technology to keep our mobile workers productive.

“The combination of our warehouse system technology paired with Honeywell's mobile computers allow us to operate at a productivity level we've never seen before in our history.”

HON delivers industry-specific solutions that include aerospace products and services; control technologies for buildings and industry; and performance materials globally. Last week, the company released its latest innovation in robotic technology designed to help warehouses and distribution centers automate the manual process of unloading pallets, reducing the operational risks of potential injuries and labor shortages (pictured above).
