EUROPE-WIDE Illegal trade and smuggling of tobacco products causes damage in the 2-digit billion range

EUROPE-WIDE the consumption of counterfeit and smuggled cigarettes is around 8.7%.

WORLDWIDE the number of unreported cases is between 6 - 8.5%.


TRANSPARENCY from production to the consumer:

  • Marking of each SKU (smallest container size) with a unique serial number

  • Aggregation of the individual SKUs into the next packaging unit (e.g. carton)

  • Aggregation of packaging units on the shipping unit (for example, pallet)

  • Deaggregation and re-aggregation across all aggregation levels

  • Global provision of serial number and aggregation data 

  • Recording of goods receipts at distributors, wholesalers, retailers

  • Recording of outgoing goods at distributors, wholesalers, retailers

The advantages are obvious:

  • Documentation of the supply chain from the manufacturer to the end consumer

  • Reduce product aging within the supply chain

  • Improving product data accuracy and preserving this data

  • New possibilities in CRM (customer relationship)
