Track and trace is a process used in supply chain management to monitor the movement of products from their origin to their final destination.
It involves the use of technology, such as barcodes, RFID (radio-frequency identification), or serial numbers, to track and record the various stages of a product’s journey.
This allows companies to have real-time visibility into their supply chains, enabling them to identify bottlenecks, streamline operations, and enhance customer service. By capturing data at each point, track and trace systems provide crucial information on product location, condition, and handling, ensuring compliance with regulations, minimizing losses, and facilitating efficient recall management. Ultimately, track and trace enhances supply chain transparency, improves efficiency, and builds trust among stakeholders by ensuring the integrity and reliability of product information.
