Supply chain transparency and traceability – a competitive advantage for suppliers of raw materials

The first step in a transparency seamless supply chain is critical. Manufacturers , sustainability, of raw materials and semi-finished goods supply fundamental data to a large number of companies, providing information on the production and quality of the ingredients they use. However, suppliers of raw materials have to meet increasingly diverse customer expectations in terms of data. This is a challenge that ftrace overcomes by using standardisation. In other words, it uses a single language to express traceability along the entire supply chain, minimises losses as a result of misunderstandings and increases overall efficiency.
