Technology provides offline and real-time visibility on the conditions of the cargo in the transport chain and creates opportunities to intervene in the supply chain execution to safeguard the quality of the products. However, end-to-end supply chain solutions to monitor and guarantee real-time product quality are lagging in implementation. The adoption of new end-to-end supply chain solutions and technologies requires a solid definition and understanding of quality and the impact of the supply chain on the loss of quality and its commercial consequences. In this paper, we present an explorative analysis of three cases in which the drivers for quality is linked to supply chain improvements and control and the selection of solutions and technologies.
