External traceability refers to the methods, elements and procedures necessary to obtain traceable data between the companies that make up the supply chain.
External traceability deals with the exchange in data of the properties of goods drawn between different links in the chain. Data gets exchanged with third parties or when tracking is required within the same company but between separate geographical locations.
External traceability is divided into three general processes that are common to all links in the chain:
Reception of goods or captured data from vendors or a third parties
Internal traceability within the company using the initial data from third parties, adding data generated in the processes themselves
Issuing and sharing information with customers or the next link in the chain.
Necessary for communication and understanding between different parties in the supply chain
Drawing data and parameters for your business for all traceable goods
