TRACK AND TRACE SYSTEM: IOCL
GTI has implemented one of the largest track & trace system for Oil Industry in India. It has implemented the use of a QR code based methodology that will provide accurate and timely decision support for multiple functional for IOCL’s Servo manufacturing
plants across 10 locations in India producing over 10 Crore cans/year. One of the largest in the country. The system supports complete material tracking and also provide IOCL with the ability to take strategic marketing decisions.
The system allows the CIPs to be aware of what material is planned for receipt on any given day. At the retailer and the consumer end an app is hosted by GTI which has the facility to scan the QR codes on each’s (SKU) as well as
the cartons. IOCL officers have the feature to scan the carton as well as the SKU. The retailers will also be enabled to scan via the app. On scanning, the user will get the entire history of that particular carton/SKU so as to
determine the origin, the warehouse history and also the way it reached the particular place. This scan can also be used for validating the stock consumption at the distributor end. The app is designed in such a way that it will
provide real-time feedback regarding authenticity and traceability of the SKUs.
The objectives are many, which are tangible as well as intangible:
- Minimizes counterfeit products in the market.
- Complete end to end track and trace.
- Inventory clarity at all nodes.
- Minimizes product/batch mismatch.
- Data for analytics for effective decision making.
- Loyalty programs enables on the barcode platform.
- Cross State Infiltration minimizes.
