Prepare for the Next Shipping Surge with Transparency Labels

Consumers continue to spend more hard-earned dollars each year on holiday shopping. As the global supply chain crunch begins to lessen, there is also the risk of surges in shipping needs as global supply is finally able to match consumer demand. Consequently, warehouses and distribution centers can expect an increased need for order management. Manufacturers will also need to be aware of the possibility of counterfeits. These factors should put transparency labels on the radar for every warehouse, operational and shipping leader.

Consider the Commission on Theft of Intellectual Property reported an economic loss of up to $1.2 trillion in 2017 for counterfeited goods sold across the globe. To combat the counterfeit market, tech giants such as Amazon revolutionized authenticity tracking with the all-new Transparency Label. Committed to efficient order fulfillment and customer satisfaction, Ascent Solutions has integrated transparency labels in the Ascent Label Anything application on Salesforce.

How do customers know products are real? Transparency labels are a solution.

Introducing a first of its kind, Amazon’s transparency label helps validate individual items with serialized codes so they can be tracked by distribution centers to ensure authenticity. Codes generally cost between 1 to 5 cents per item, and customers can later scan codes themselves to verify their purchase.
