What is Supply Chain Traceability?

Traceability is the process of tracing the origins, movement, and evolution of products and materials. Supply Chain Traceability becomes incredibly complex as more parts and material value chains are involved, especially for large brands with thousands of products and suppliers along the value chain, spread across multiple continents. It requires collaboration, automation, and investment in data-driven systems.

This playbook makes the case for product- and material-level traceability. Incoming legislation means that simply collecting a list of suppliers will not suffice for traceability in the long term. Data and technology are critical for achieving this complex but necessary sustainable transformation. The team at TrusTrace has compiled interviews, research, and analysis, as well as curating practical examples and case studies from global brands, in collaboration with Fashion for Good and Fashion Revolution.
