Traceability in the logistics industry
Marking and coding in the logistics sector is essential to ensuring the traceability of shipments. Products often travel large distances before reaching distributors and consumers. Manufacturers and logistics companies are, therefore, required to code the packaging to ensure the safe arrival of the package at its final destination.
Outer packaging such as boxes, bags and envelopes must contain identifying information in order for companies to track their route throughout the supply chain and, therefore, manage traceability.
Macsa ID has developed equipment and solutions for the marking and coding of shipping materials. The range of equipment can print and mark the information directly on primary packaging (tablets), secondary packaging (blister packs) and tertiary packaging (boxes). By facilitating flexible coding, both manual intervention and human error are reduced and print quality is improved.
