This pertains to the variation of modules by location, such as some of the modules being used in certain areas that have fresh supplies of grains and agricultural products. This would change the distribution structure of the inventory from the national distribution of products to receiving the local goods from a certified product cleaning and distribution facility. The use of the fresh products may pertain to the storage of the products in a mostly raw form – such as cucumbers without the skin and the ends, while the cucumber is still entirely intact and is not sliced up prior to the slices of cucumber being needed. The technology of the allocation of fresh resources would also vary based on the frequency of orders. There may be small quantities of fresh products that are prepared for use prior to periods of business that would usually have less demand for orders, while the small quantities of the customized fresh products would be stored in temporary fresh product storage compartments, all managed individually based on their needs that pertain to the respective fresh product that is stored within the individual storage compartment.
