On Friday 13th March, Ecologistics organised a visit in the fish auction in Urk, the Netherlands. The visit enabled to understand how the fish auction and all related processes work. A pilot project with the implementation of the EPC (Electronic Product Code) is being put in place in the site to allow a logistics process more efficient and sustainable. By consequent, an optimal quality of the fish and the quality control including the traceability are enhanced.
