Fight against parallel markets
Many times, you may need to distribute your product to the marketplace by relying on trusted logistics companies. Sometimes, however, those doing the work on behalf of your supplier, or other members of the distribution chain, are not bona fide and may divert some of your cargo to feed the parallel market. Multinationals and big brands already rely on S4C to control and track high-value shipments, so they can avoid losing parts of their cargo and therefore revenue.
