In a rapidly changing global business landscape where time-to-market is becoming increasingly critical to survival, real-time information visibility across worldwide supply chains is now an essential ingredient to business success. 

Supply Chain Visibility means knowing:

  • Where things are now?
  • Why they are there? 
  • Where they were before? 
  • How many production days can be done with raw materials on hand?
  • Do inventory levels reflect the total of what’s in the back room? 
  • Plus what’s in the distribution centre? 
  • Plus what’s in transit? 


In short, supply chain visibility translates directly into business value!

GS1 System of Standards provides a means for structuring and sharing visibility information. GS1 Hong Kong, building on the success of the HKSAR government-funded EPCnetwork Project, has developed ezTRACK™ - a service that addresses today's companies’ critical need for a highly reliable solution that can effectively track and trace the flow of goods and product information from point of manufacture to point of sale through a robust Electronic Product Code™ (EPC) standard-based platform.
