Cool Insights: The Value of Supply Chain Visibility: Traceability is Just the Start

Posted May 22, 2012 | Atlanta, GA

Susan Wilkinson, a Subject Matter Expert with IBM Global Business Services, authored the Cool Insights column for the April/May 2012 issue of Food Logistics, titled “The Value of Supply Chain Visibility: Traceability is Just the Start.”  In the column, Wilkinson discusses how data from traceability systems can create a new level of visibility or transparency within the supply chain.

For the past three years, faculty, staff, and partners of the Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute’s Integrated Food Chain Center (IFC) have contributed their thoughts on various aspects of the food chain to Food Logistics Magazine under a column called Cool Insights.
