Once you have uploaded and shared (if applicable) your master data into FoodLogiQ Connect, the next phase is to determine a data submission method to complete Traceability requirements. We offer a variety of methods to upload or integrate existing data sources to help make it easy.
In most cases, you would be submitting shipment records for your customer so they can trace the movement of products across their supply chain. However, you could also be submitting receiving or transforming event information within FoodLogiQ Connect. Regardless of the Event type you are submitting, the options are the same. Below you’ll find the available data submission methods we offer. The instructions will be focused around Shipments.
Required Data Elements
Every shipping event requires a shipping date, ship from GLN, destination GLN, GTIN, lot or serial number, quantity and quantity unit of measure. On top of these attributes, you should include in custom information required by your customer.
Whether you are using the file upload or approach or not, the best way to see the custom information required for as shipment is to download the template for the file. You do this by going to the Events page and clicking on Import Event and then selecting the event and community you are collecting custom attributes for.
No matter how your shipping information was submitted they all end up in the Events log on the main business page. You can review the data there. After you successfully log in to Connect you can view the events information by clicking on Events on the left navigation.
