There is not a dedicated software application designed for anti-diversion, to my knowledge. However, standard RFID supply chain applications are designed to assign unique serial numbers to items, cases and pallets, and to track them to a specific shipment. There are companies that use these systems to track which retailers or distributors receive which batches of product. If they discover diverted product, they can read the serial numbers on the tags of those items and thereby trace which retailer or distributor received them. In so doing, they can identify which company is diverting the goods to unauthorized channels.
