LOGISTICS TRACEABILITY FOR SUPPLY CHAIN IMPROVEMENT - Case Study of SMMART Project

Paulina Blaszkowska, Jana Pieriegud, Michal Wolanski

Abstract

Tracking and tracing of shipment is nowadays a key element of customer service. RFID technology, which provides real-time tracking, helps to indicate and to monitor the transition of the events along the supply chain. Traceability permits not only to reduce the total logistics cost and to shorten the order cycle time, but also to increase efficiency, to improve quality performance and to offer new added value services for clients. The Authors present the theoretical background of the problem as well as the experiences and the ideas of new solutions which are currently developed within the SMMART 6 Framework Program Project.
