Every value chain is experiencing

the challenges of visibility and traceability.

We have industry-specific solutions.

Value Chain Summit October 21-22

Mark your calendars for October 21-22 for Axia’s annual Value Chain Summit: Traceability Across Value Chains hosted by the Axia Institute in Midland, Michigan. 

During this year’s summit, we will explore supply chain visibility and traceability. We’ll start by discussing the current challenges in supply chain visibility, such as a lack of real-time data and pieces of data from across partners, and how global standards provide a foundation for solutions in healthcare, food and agriculture, and manufacturing.

Our session will continue as we explore mandates in the U.S. and Europe and solutions that are not only compliant but foster trust and transparency with consumers. All of the talk of traceability and visibility wouldn’t be possible without technology; so we’ll discuss emerging technologies like RFID, blockchain and the Internet of Things, that reveal a product’s journey.
