Track and Trace

Track and Trace means the same as traceability but recognises two distinct applications. Tracking is knowing where products are at each stage of the supply chain, so emphasizes the flow of goods from origin to destination, including all the handling and production processes they go through. Tracing usually operates in the reverse direction, for example, tracing the source of a faulty component that ends up in a finished product.
