Why buy this report?

In a globalised world, the leather supply chain is very complex. Hides and skins are shipped and traded all over the world and during the leather making process they can be bought and sold, graded and mixed with several other batches and sources along the way. The leather-making process also uses many physical-chemical processes which make monitoring each hide or skin a challenge. 

Being able to track materials through the process is a major challenge but it is one where some progress has been made in recent years and the report brings together an overview of some of the latest techniques employed in the industry to improve traceability and features some real-life case studies.
