PMI Product Marking
Philip Morris International (PMI) is committed to securing the supply chain and fighting illicit trade by using effective tracking and tracing system.
Tracking and Tracing
Tracking is the ability to monitor the forward movement of finished goods through the supply chain. Tracing is the ability to re-create that movement up to a certain point in the supply chain, to help determine where the product was diverted into illegal channels.
Master Case Tracking Technology
At PMI each master case is tracked as it moves from the factory to the warehouse and into the supply chain. Every master case carries a unique barcode label and the system automatically links this code to the order from a distributor or wholesaler (first purchaser).
