Our new barcode system ensures traceability and increases transparency.
With the new barcode system, Melos ensures the traceability of all production batches and supplies. For Melos customers, this means that, by capturing the barcode, it is always possible to track when the ordered material was produced at Melos, which path it took, what materials were used and from which supplier.
Thus, material properties, production parameters and the supply chain can be traced quickly and transparently - even years after the material was used. In this way, in the product divisions of Coloured EPDM Granules and Infill Granules, Melos GmbH achieves an exceptional standard in the industry: precise traceability and transparency throughout the entire value chain.
Thus, for example, complaints can be quickly traced and resolved. Whether the cause of the complaint is incorrect care, difficulties during installation or material weakness.
Here, however, Melos GmbH is dependent on the cooperation of its customers. Melos customers who document the batch number (the number below the barcode) when using or installing EPDM granules are always on the safe side. By doing so, the production batch is assigned to the customer's project and traceability of the installed surface is assured - right back to the raw material used.
Other advantages of the system emerge in the logistics chain: by using barcodes on each shipping unit (big bag, pallet), each unit gets a "name". This unique assignment can be used by decentralized stores, for example, for inventory and supply management.
