I want the products I deliver to be legit and do not want to be a part of criminal activity. I want to be protected from handling dangerous fake products, which jeopardise my business and the people I deliver to.
As a logistics operator, I am a key link in the supply chain. My clients are rights holders of all shapes and sizes. I want the best service for my clients; I don’t support free riders or organised crime.
My business is dependent on my reputation to deliver reliably, quickly and cost effectively.
Trucks or storage facilities that are held for inspection cause delays and any seizures damage my reputation. I want to be able to reassure consumers and authorities that my business can be trusted.
Given the numbers of companies that can be involved in this global logistical network I want to have great communications with those upstream and downstream. When I receive goods to store or move I want to be sure these are safe and authentic.
As an ethical employer I want to safeguard my employees; they should not have to be concerned about their safety nor held under any suspicion. They can be proud to play their part in a trusted distribution system.
The Future …
Imagine if all movements of products could be tracked from location to location, passing from one operator to another and that these validated routes were automatically shared with the other person in the chain.
Imagine that I could be sure of the authenticity of all the goods I receive and that there is no chance of handling fake goods. What if at every step in the supply chain the journey could be traced with a safe handover between the operators involved.
Imagine a relationship with customs built on trust and transparency and that the goods I transport are considered legitimate. There would be no reason to inspect our facilities or trucks.
What if I, as an ethical operator, could guarantee top quality, safe and reliable service for clients? What if my employees would never have to suffer the inconvenience or risk of handling illegal goods?
