The Seoul Agriculture, Fisheries and Food Corporation is set to implement mandatory pallet shipments for cabbages in November and for carrots in December, with an exemption for Jeju carrots, to enhance logistics efficiency at Seoul's Garak Market. This initiative, aimed at streamlining operations, will gradually extend to other produce, including cucumbers and tangerines by 2025 and 2027, respectively, with a goal for all items in the Vegetable and Fruit Buildings to be pallet-shipped by 2030.
