Air Trace

Building greater trust in supply chains to protect and empower brands, businesses and consumers

The need for brand and product trust 

The fragmentation of data across supply chain pathways hinders brand and product trust among businesses, consumers, and communities. As brands face growing demands for transparency and accountability, they need a solution to integrate supply chain data in a trusted way and provide greater transparency for business partners and societal stakeholders.

 

PwC’s Air Trace integrates supply chain data in a trusted blockchain ecosystem

Data is integrated from multiple sources to provide greater granularity in product traceability, with flexibility to accommodate existing business practices. Brands, businesses, and consumers gain transparency into product origin and movements with confidence in the shared data.
