New tool kit provides best practices and advice from major manufacturers

Need help in devising a plan to keep counterfeits out of your supply chain? The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Coalition Against Counterfeiting and Piracy recently introduced a resource designed to help. Called the No Trade in Fakes Supply Chain Tool Kit, this documentation outlines a variety of strategies for manufacturers to consider as they prepare to protect their supply chains from counterfeiters.

In addition to providing a list of supply chain best practices, the tool kit includes seven case studies of businesses that have implemented strategies to defeat counterfeiters. Ford, Merck, New Balance, Purdue Pharma, Xerox, Bendix and Torys, a business law firm, share their insights.

The supply chain toolkit is available for download at
