Perishables Traceability: Critical for Today's Supply Chains
All VideosPerishables Traceability: Critical for Today's Supply Chains
Today's supply chains that handle perishable goods are increasingly global and diverse in nature. This diversity stems from the variety of players involved, as well as their sizes, technological and process maturities, and geographic locations. Traceability is critical, with issues ranging from product recalls and food safety to manging risk, improving shrinkage and reducing costs, advancing the consumer's right to know, and improving supply chain visibility. IBM and Matiq are working together to implement a traceability solution to track meat products from farm to consumer sale. RFID technology is automating the collection of data and creating the basis for visibility in this solution. This session will discuss Matiq's visibility project, and provide a global perspective on perishables traceability and reusable container tracking, as well as a standards-based roadmap for achieving incremental traceability on a proven platform.
