  • METTLER TOLEDO​ Track and Trace Aggregation Benefits

    Simplifying the shipping of products requires aggregation to a higher packaging level. If the parent-child relationships are stored via the serial numbers during aggregation, it is also possible to track individual packages across the supply chain. Each aggregated group is assigned a parent code, creating an e-pedigree for each item. Cases or pallets can be further aggregated into shipping containers.

    As pieces are added or removed, the association between the individual item and the aggregated code can be altered. This is managed through data entry on the software interface. Movement of each product is recorded from its creation on the production line, through to the warehouse of a wholesaler, and eventually the point of sale where the product's authenticity can be verified. Our PCE Line Manager software features a highly configurable aggregation process that supports manual and automated aggregation of pharmaceuticals. We also offer standalone or integrated aggregation solutions designed to fit into your existing production process.
