Batch tracking allows for tracing goods along the distribution chain by using batch numbers. A batch refers to a set of goods that has been produced at the same time using the same materials.
Batch traceability becomes important, if any product is defective and needs to be recalled. Instead of doubting all the goods produced and sold, a batch number will allow only those with a common batch identification to be recalled.
Thus batch tracking is especially important in the food sector, and can enable wholesalers to maintain better quality control. In food, expiration dates are very crucial and a particular batch will have this information on the label, so that this information is also available to buying customers. Batch tracking software also allows you to track the material of suppliers, so that you can take a call on their reliability.
