Zürich, Switzerland- March 30, 2017- Arviem AG announced today its strategic partnership with SICPA, the leading global provider of secured identification, traceability and authentication solutions and services. Thanks to SICPA’s integrated security solutions, Arviem will be able to provide complete visibility to the journey of products from the production site to shelf in a trusted way while protecting the integrity and value of the monitored goods. The solution will help in digitizing the supply chain from end-to-end and in ensuring a secure sharing of information between stakeholders.

Globalization and the emergence of new technologies have helped many companies to reimagine their supply chains which became more global, more complex and more vulnerable. When companies strive to improve their supply chains, for example for quality and sustainability reasons, all stakeholders in the supply chain need to be included in the initiative which means collecting a lot of data from many different sources. What sets successful supply chain improvement initiatives apart from the unsuccessful ones is the company’s ability to collect, measure and analyze data in real-time and from a trusted source. “Our vision of increasing visibility and security in global trade through uncovering supply chain blind-spots could not be supported by a better partner than SICPA, a company that has developed multi-layered authentication, anti-tempering, identification and traceability solutions that are trusted by governments and private organizations worldwide” says Stefan Reidy, CEO of Arviem.

Arviem’s market leading real-time cargo monitoring service will help companies to enhance the visibility and integrity of their supply chains while providing value adding business intelligence and ensuring product protection and regulatory compliance. Thanks to the smart data and insights provided by Arviem’s IoT technology based sensing devices, clients will be able to gain unprecedented visibility to the journey of their products and identify inefficiencies in the supply chain. Improved supply chain visibility will enable manufacturers as well as importers and exporters to digitize and optimize their supply chain processes and to verify the quality of their products while in-transit. As SICPA’s solutions and services have been created to support the company’s vision of ‘Building trust in global supply chains’ the jointly developed service will help clients to eliminate fraud and illicit activities from supply chains.
