Alibaba Cloud BaaS (Blockchain as a Service) supports end-to-end traceability and anti-counterfeiting service along the supply chain flow of products

Alibaba Cloud BaaS integrates Alibaba Cloud Internet of Things (IoT) and anti-counterfeiting technologies to provide Blockchain solutions for product traceability. This service supports a transparent transaction history that is tamper-resistant. The transaction history is shared and acknowledged by multiple participants. This service supports querying and auditing by consumers and regulatory authorities.

Issues Resolved

  • Lack of Information Transparency

    The information back from the consumer to the very beginning of the supply chain is not transparent and cannot be traced back to the source. There is an information gap between the consumer and the manufacturers. This lack of information transparency makes it very difficult to trace the product origin

  • Information Tampering

    Supply chain information is prone to the risks of counterfeiting and tampering

  • Difficult to Trace and Recall

    When a product quality or safety issue occurs, it is difficult to trace and recall the product, or locate the responsible party

Benefits
