The purpose of tracking and tracing a product is for the manufacturer to have the ability to maintain control over their product from manufacture to final receipt by their clients. This can be achieved by serialising each item, to a box and pallet. This establishes a relationship between the item, box and pallet and helps to identify which shipments have been diverted, should this take place. Additionally, accountability for these serialised products can be established as date, time and person responsible for the shipments is recorded once scanned at planned scan points.

Pagemark Africa’s solution to uniquely identify individual items is the most powerful strategy for combating counterfeiting.
