Supply Chain
Traceability
Technology Tools
By Laura Olson
Why Are Supply Chain Traceability Tools Needed?
• Primary concerns include concerns about bioterrorism
• Foodborne illness outbreaks
• Product counterfeit
• Product contamination, quality and safety concerns
Product recalls are typically costly. This is due to several factors. For companies
that do not utilize traceability tools, the payment on the traceability technology
investment tends to be rapid. Traceability systems typically pay for themselves
during the first product recall. Being able to quickly identify only the products that
need to be recalled versus those during a longer period of production can make an
enormous difference and minimize the financial impact of the recall
Using technology to enable traceability can have additional benefits. Using
technology to facilitate traceability can provide a treasure trove of data that can be
used for other purposes to help improve your business and operational processes.
In addition, having access to this real time data can help you to improve and
streamline your operation and business processes.

Why Are Supply Chain Traceability Tools Needed?
Governmental Regulations and Large Retailers Are Driving the Use of Traceability
Tools
European Union:
Since January 2005, the EU has required traceability systems. Businesses must
be able to identify all suppliers of food products and food as well as all businesses
to which they supply food or feed. Because of the directive that requires all
information must be available to inspection authorities on demand, the
information must be stored in a systematic manner for easy access.
United States:
The Bioterrorism Act of December 2005 requires that records are maintained to
identify the immediate previous sources as well as the immediate subsequent
recipients. This includes both food and packaging.
Tools and systems differ depending upon the size of the country, type of
ingredients, supply chain complexity and other factors.
Why Are Supply Chain Traceability Tools Needed?
Traceability solutions can assist in:
• Documentation and recordkeeping
• Monitoring of goods to help protect consumer safety
• Enabling process improvements
• Better decision making
• Helping to increase brand satisfaction through faster, more effective
product recalls
• Identifying and tracking problem products sooner so that consumers can
be notified immediately
Types of Traceability Technology Tools
1. Product Identification and Marking (ID)
2. Traceability Tools and Software
3. Radio Frequency Identification Devices (RFID)
Product Identification and Marking (ID)
Product Identification and Marking Tools are the most commonly used of all
the traceability tools. Product identification tools include barcode and
imprinting tools that rely on tracking numbers in order to connect data on the
production history with that of the finished goods.
QR codes can be used as secondary barcodes for automated product tracking
during transport or on conveyor systems. Full product traceability from the
point of production to producer can be enabled using QR barcodes.
Types of Traceability Tools
Traceability Tools and Software
Traceability software and technology tools help in the collection and
management of data in order to help improve product quality, security and
safety throughout the supply chain.
These track and trace tools can help businesses document compliance with
legal requirements, customer and trading partner standards and can be used to
track and document whether products are organic, genetically modified or have
other special attributes.
Using software designed for product traceability can help your business to
compete more effectively in winning the business of retailers. This is especially
true when dealing with those that require data exchange via EDI or with retailers
that require that product recalls be completed in only a few hours.
Today, some warehouse management systems include track and trace
capabilities and there are also various freestanding traceability software
systems available.
Types of Traceability Tools
Traceability Tools and Software
Governmental regulations often require that companies collect and retain data
documenting the control of products and raw materials throughout the supply
chain. This is especially true of food and pharmaceutical products.
Traceability systems are often used with or sometimes include environmental
monitors and product scanners. This enables information to be organized,
stored and easily retrieved whenever needed.
Types of Traceability Tools
Radio Frequency Identification Devices (RFID)
The use of RFID for product traceability is increasing as the cost of this
technology has been reduced. Some retailers and governmental agencies use
RFID Smart Labeling in order to track product movement throughout the supply
chain.
To do this, a smart label or smart tag (a very flat configured transponder
positioned under a conventional print-coded label) is placed on a product. The tag
relies on radio frequency communications between the smart label and a portable
memory device and host computer to exchange data.
RFID tags can be encoded with a variety of information that can then be collected
using an RFID reader.
RFID does not require human intervention and can be used passively to track the
movement of products within closed systems such as within a warehouse. No
scanning of barcodes or labels are needed and multiple RFID smart labels can be
read simultaneously.
IoT and Traceability
What is IoT?
IoT, the “Internet of Things” is an intertwined system of a variety of technologies
that capture data and communicate it through IP networks to software
applications. The status of physical objects is monitored and the data from the
smart object is stored in a centralized database then sorted into a human-
readable format.
The information captured may be generated using either a manual or automated
interaction and auto-ID technology is used to enable the communication
between devices and objects.

IoT can aid in:
• Monitoring shipment status
• Providing the real time location of inventory within a facility
• Tracking the point of origin, days until expiration and other attributes of
goods
• Provide component/ingredient-level visibility of products, including product
lifespan data
• Reducing the labor and errors associated with manual track and trace
efforts
IoT and Traceability
Conclusion
The need for the ability to track and trace products throughout the supply chain has
Increased over the past few years due to concerns regarding consumer safety,
product recalls, counterfeit products and bioterrorism.
Today, technology can play a vital role in reducing the cost and accuracy of
information associated with product traceability. A variety of tools are available to
suit company budgets including traceability software, product identification and
marking and RFID.
The Internet of Things is making real time product traceability easier and faster.
Using auto-ID technology and Internet enabled devices, companies can provide
information visibility throughout the supply chain and gain substantial benefits that
aid in better management of products and systems.
