Point-to-Point PIDC Traceback for Freight Guarantees Source Verification
17 July 2005
By applying RFID and barcode technology in labeling drums, pallets,
bins, and RPCs that are used in transporting foods, fruits, and
vegetable crops, ScoringAg’s Internet-based databank is able to
maintain a complete, Point-to-Point Traceback™ transport record in real
time. Accessing the information stored in the RFID and barcode label
and the associated Web-based databank enables positive identification
of the container’s contents, source, destination, handlers and
shippers, and other data required to maintain security and proper
schedules for these critical entities.
Because sales import and
export of food items has become a global business, ScoringAg’s entity
tracking of freight items has become essential in the extremely
important effort of securing the worldwide food supply from source to
final destination, thus protecting the supply chain from disruption by
bio-terrorists. This applies to everything on our dinner tables, from
bulk grains and fresh fruits and vegetables, to all types of meats and
processed foods – all the things we routinely eat that are exposed to a
wide variety of transport and handling stages.
unique, patented tracking and traceback system utilizes the latest in
RFID and 2D expandable barcode labeling technology, in combination with
a global Web-based databank to capture detailed history and source
verification of package handlers, shippers, and storage facilities in
their use of reusable RPCs, bins, pallets, and drums to satisfy FDA and
Homeland Security rules, as well as all national and International
import / export regulations.
Using Web-based RFID and barcode
labeling for supply chain management, Point-to-Point Traceback™ of
products at all shipping stages secures the entire food supply chain.
All transporters, trucks, trailers and dock loaders are part of the
record of movement from one unique Premises ID Code (PIDC) to the next
unique PIDC (point to point along the chain) for positive source
verification. The label’s 2D barcode also maintains other data for
perishable commodities linked to a traceback record, helping to comply
with FDA, USDA, and International regulations easily, securely, and at
very low cost.
