Track and trace refer to the ability to track an individual item through the supply chain and trace it to its origin.
Reliable track and trace solutions keep consumers safe by enabling accurate and timely recalls and help manufacturers comply with industry regulations.
Also, by providing manufacturers with insight into their supply chains, track and trace solutions allow companies to make data-driven decisions to improve transportation logistics, increase product quality, and reduce the risk of recall over time.
Track and trace solutions depend on reliable automatic identification of individual products throughout the supply chain—most commonly by scanning barcodes at every stage from production to purchase. Track and trace solutions are only as reliable as the devices that scan the codes, so selecting a reliable identification technology is critical.
Identification devices from Banner Engineering are stable, rugged, and powerful to meet the most demanding applications. Our barcode readers are easy-to-use and built-to-last, enabling track and trace programs that manufacturers can count on for years to come.

The information contained in each barcode must be verified before the box is packed onto a pallet and shipped. Barcode position changes with the location of each box on the conveyor and the height of a box can vary with each shipment.
Barcodes used to track packaged produce through the supply chain contain important product information that must be verified at multiple points during packaging.
2D codes etched into automotive components are verified at multiple points during vehicle assembly. The codes are small and complex and can be hard to distinguish from the material they are etched into.
