CERT Group, the leading bonded warehouse operator, has announced the launch of its new stock traceability system, enabling their customers to quickly trace the exact location of its stock at any time.
New EC regulations that came into force this year mean that suppliers are required to have systems and procedures in place to identify where product may be in the supply chain at any time. CERT has launched a new sophisticated stock traceability system which provides full compliance with the new rules.
The new system, already live, was developed by CERTs in-house team of IT specialists and provides the customer with total stock traceability. By the customer supplying a Lot Code to a batch of product the stock can immediately be traced and all movements provided including receipt details, delivery point information and the date when the movement occurred. The system will also be able to provide the balance status, relating to the Lot Code, of stock still in the warehouse providing warehouse location and pallet identification details.
The report outputs can be exported into Excel, PDF or other formats and emailed to the customer making the request. The system is already being used internally by CERT. Customers will soon be able to carry out this process themselves through CERTs on-line system by entering their own Lot Code numbers to retrieve all movement information. Customers will also be able to download the information directly.
In cases when customers have their own traceability systems, CERT has developed daily data feeds to send movements per Lot Code on a daily basis.
Jeff Stanton, CERTs Chief Executive commented: There is a need to provide this level of information into the marketplace in order to comply with EC regulations. Our new system provides a safe and efficient, ready made, solution to meet the new requirements of the regulations with reports downloaded into readable outputs and sent to our customers within minutes of their request.
