ITNís Traceability Objective: |
Improve our customersí ability to respond to food safety issues by providing a foundation for collaborative traceability with real-time visibility into product movement.
The recent high incidence of recalls in the food supply chain has resulted in increased focus by government agencies and industry groups to address the issue of food safety and traceability. ITN is actively involved in pioneering solutions to this challenge with groups such as the USDA, FDA, PMA, CPMA and United Fresh.
Given the complexity of this issue many companies are confused about how to address the challenge. GTINís, bar codes, labeling and scanning solutions can fit into a companyís larger traceability strategy but nothing really ties it all together Ė except iTradeNetwork.
ITN is the hub that ties the business processes and information together with your existing trade processes yielding the simplest, most cost effective solution to get you across the 2012 Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI) finish line.
ITNís Procurement & Merchandising, Inventory Management and Transportation Optimization solution suites already have the critical workflow logic and data elements needed to comply with steps one through six of the PTI.
Collaboration is Key
One of the key drivers in accomplishing cost effective traceability is the strong collaboration between suppliers and buyers procurement processes. ITNís existing network of over 5,500 customers conducting over $220 billion in commerce annually allows clients to cost effectively implement a traceability platform that supports industry standards today.
ITNís existing trading platform leverages millions of item codes synchronized between trading partners and rich source information such as lot tracking, container seal identification tracking, country of origin labeling (COOL), product expiration dates and SSCC18 bar coding allowing customers to get up and running quickly.Contact us to learn more.
