SEATTLE — A computer glitch has slowed the shipment of liquor from a state distribution center in south Seattle.
The state Liquor Control Board’s director of business enterprise, Pat McLaughlin, told KING-TV a software upgrade was supposed to smooth the system of carousels and conveyor belts the send boxes to delivery trucks.
But delays in the system since June 6 left 30 to 40 percent of orders unfilled. The Washington Restaurant Association says some restaurants weren’t able to get their fill.
The state has been paying warehouse workers overtime as software fixes are implemented.
