Keeping Track

As the global pharmaceutical industry implements serialisation to meet governmental regulatory requirements, other opportunities exist for companies to realise business benefits. The main driver for serialisation is to provide greater integrity to the supply chain, but other meaningful advantages can also be obtained.

In addition to tightening up the supply chain and channels of trade, serialisation can provide great efficiencies for processing shipments and knowing what specific packages are included in shipments down to the lowest saleable unit. Tracking information can be updated continuously and provided to brand owners and supply chain partners on dashboards or on mobile applications.

To combat counterfeiting, new authentication technologies now exist for linking serial numbers to security features that are unique to each package to detect possible replication of serial numbers by counterfeiters.
