Secure Track and Trace Overlay
YPB’s Secure Track and Trace is specifically designed to further augment existing authentication systems of shipments and goods. This does not replace an existing track and trace system but rather supplements it as an overlay, providing an extra tier of security. Here is how:
Track. Trace. Secure.
Our Digital (QR/NFC) Track and Trace Overlay is a scalable solution integrated with our proprietary platform, giving you tracking ability and shipment reports. Each item with a unique code can be ‘digitally followed’, grouped into coded boxes and collated into coded pallets. This allows a shipment to be broken down and rerouted to various storehouses, while maintaining full visibility and verification of the original shipment throughout its journey.
Shipments can be scanned, verified, checked in or out by the registered users of a secure app to ensure the shipment’s integrity at all times.
Digital + Forensic
The inclusion of our proprietary, Covert Forensic Marker – in a QR code for example - allows for an even more stringent method of authentication. This combination of proprietary and digital security makes it virtually impossible to hijack or dilute a shipment through counterfeiting.
Shipments can be tracked in real time using the location of the registered user’s phone. For example, we can track the location of a truck shipment by geo-locating the driver’s phone. It is a cost effective security solution that doesn’t require additional hardware or external geosat tracking services.
The integration of YPB’s Track and Trace Overlay requires minimal intrusion into existing production/packaging and logistics services, which reduces any potential interruption.
The Secure Track and Trace Overlay system is adaptable to manufacturers as well as wholesalers and retailers, ensuring a breadth of authenticity check points.
Once a shipment has reached a retailer, the QR codes/NFC tags can be automatically repurposed to become highly useful, customer engagement touchpoints.
As the digital platform’s space is virtually limitless, an infinite number of items, SKUs, boxes, pallets, shipments can be tracked and reported in a seamless manner. This digital view of a shipment also makes it easier to flag grey market exports or unauthorized diversion of shipments that is an unfortunate problem in some markets.
