Title (EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR TRACKING CONTAINERS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET SYSTÈME POUR SUIVRE DES CONTENANTS
Abstract:
(EN) A method for tracking containers. The method includes manufacturing containers (24), including forming the containers (24) and serializing them with machine-readable codes (26). The method further includes using the machine-readable codes (26) to store data associated with the containers (24), and supplying the containers (24) to a customer. The method still further comprises receiving from the customer, data obtained from customer-readings of the machine- readable codes (26); and receiving from one or more other locations in a distribution chain in which the containers (24) travel, data obtained from readings of the machine-readable codes (26) at those locations. The method still further comprises comparing the data from the customer-readings and other readings of the machine-readable codes (26) across product brands, product distribution channels, and/or container types, and providing the data to the customer. In at least some embodiments, the method further comprises receiving from the customer a compensation for the containers (24), for example, a per-refill compensation.
(FR) L’invention concerne un procédé pour suivre des contenants. Le procédé consiste à fabriquer des contenants (24), comprenant la formation de ceux-ci (24) et leur sérialisation avec des codes lisibles par machine (26). Le procédé consiste en outre à utiliser les codes lisibles par machine (26) pour stocker des données associées aux contenants (24), et à fournir les contenants (24) à un client. Le procédé consiste encore en outre à recevoir, du client, des données obtenues par la lecture, par le client, des codes lisibles par machine (26) ; à recevoir, d’un ou de plusieurs autres emplacements dans une chaîne de distribution dans laquelle les contenants (24) se déplacent, des données obtenues par la lecture des codes lisibles par machine (26) à ces emplacements. Le procédé consiste encore en outre à comparer les données provenant des lectures de client et d’autres lectures des codes lisibles par machine (26) concernant les marques de produits, les chaînes de distribution de produits et/ou les types de contenants, et à fournir les données au client. Dans au moins certains modes de réalisation, le procédé consiste en outre à recevoir, du client, une compensation pour les contenants (24), par exemple, une compensation par recharge.
