Wholesaling at Destination and Terminal Market Facilities

  • R. Brian How

Abstract

In the ever-changing world of marketing fresh fruits and vegetables, wholesaling at destination and terminal wholesale market facilities play several important roles. Fresh produce arrives by truck, railcar, ship, or airplane at major population centers across the country from nearby and distant growing areas. Wholesalers, some clustered on central terminal facilities and others scattered throughout the market area, receive this produce. These wholesalers perform essential market services such as ripening or repacking, and resell smaller amounts to many different types of customers.
