What happens to your product when it leaves the warehouse? Can you see when it’s delivered to your customer? Do you know which batch was sent to which retailer? Can you tell what condition it was in when it arrived or who was responsible for it at any given time? With so much data and technology, the ability to trace your entire supply chain from component to customer is becoming a reality for small and medium manufacturers.
