On the Trail to Traceability
New Legislation and New Complexity Lead to New Recall Challenges
The last decade has seen an unprecedented increase in the complexity of today’s global supply chains. More products come from more suppliers, from more places than ever before. Managing, monitoring and auditing the procurement, production, storage, transportation and handling of inventory in such an environment presents a significant challenge to businesses up and down the supply chain. And, as the challenges expand, so do the laws and regulations enacted by countries around the globe to govern food and product handling to ensure consumer health and safety.
Commerce in Motion commissioned a new study to gauge the current state of our ability to effectively track, trace, and recall products, both inside the enterprise and up and down the supply chain. We surveyed supply chain and operations executives from close to 130 CPG, Life Sciences, and Food & Beverage companies, most of whom (~77%) represent companies greater than $500M in annual revenue.
The study yielded some interesting results, submit the form below to learn more.
