In 2017 the company developed the Global ID Solution so that their customers could more easily conform to changing government regulation. The introduction of the Global system has been a major success that has resulted in international sales and also some very large Australian organisations considering using the system exclusively.

The future for APE Distribution is to keep innovating and distributing products that make it easy and profitable for stores to offer an efficient service that their customers enjoy.
