In general, companies do not know enough about the products that they buy and sell to navigate the many complex challenges facing today’s global supply chains.Some companies are realizing the business value of traceability for efficiency, cost savings, and achieving product premiums in the market. However, they must first overcome the mistrust associated with validating claims of product identity and traceability. Blockchain, a type of distributed ledger technology (DLT), has been increasingly gaining market traction in supply chains—for example, in proofing product provenance and implementing track-and-trace of products through the supply chain. This panel, framed in the context of the Interreg project PMI NETWORK, aims at presenting different visions related to the value behind traceability for the supply chain, with contributions either touching technological and socio-economic drivers.

Coordinator: Andrea Barni, SUPSI
