Serialization 2/0 - Getting Prepared for the Future of Pharma Supply Chain Security

Serialization as part of the battle on counterfeit drugs and supply chain security has been established in various ways over the last decade – at different levels of success for the industry investing in such measures. With legislation becoming effective in an increasing number of countries and multinational companies looking for universal ways of coding their individual products around the world, item level serialization is now ready for a next step.
