Counterfeit Protection and Supply Chain Control
The importance of marking and tracking of individual products on their way through the supply chain is increasing rapidly. Traceability and supply chain transparency are becoming increasingly important due to the dramatic global increase of counterfeits in industrial and consumer goods.
Various national regulations have been established in order to protect the legal supply chain of tobacco, alcohol and prescription drugs. These differ not only in terms of required data carriers and contents, but also range from straightforward serialisation of individual sales units (e.g. EU FMD) to product e-pedigree that illustrate the complete path of a product through the supply chain to the point of dispense.
Regardless of whether compliance requirements need to be fulfilled or whether the objective is to achieve greater transparency in the supply chain, Blackware track & trace solutions supports the structuring of processes and increases product safety.
