Why Track & Trace?
Counterfeit protection and supply chain control
The marking and tracking of individual products on their way through the supply chain is moving into focus, not just in the pharmaceutical industry. Traceability and supply chain transparency – a long-standing requirement in the automotive and food industries – are becoming increasingly important due to the dramatic global increase of counterfeits in industrial and consumer goods.

Drug Supply Chain Security Act
Various national regulations have been established in order to protect the legal supply chain of prescription drugs. These differ not only in terms of required data carriers and contents, but also range from straightforward serialisation of individual sales units (e.g. EU FMD) to product e-pedigree that illustrate the complete path of a product through the supply chain to the point of dispense.
Regardless of whether compliance requirements need to be fulfilled or whether the objective is to achieve greater transparency in the supply chain, Track & Trace supports the structuring of processes and increases product safety.
Modular solutions for all requirements
The broad range of Track & Trace solutions reflects the various requirements of the pharmaceutical industry.
The scope of Secure Track & Trace Solutions (S-TTS) ranges from MV-50 to go, a preconfigured Pack Handling System for the serialisation of folded boxes, to serialisation and multi-level aggregation on various packaging lines with integration into higher-level business IT solutions of global pharmaceutical corporations.
