GM Europe Secures its Supply Chain with “Genuine GM Parts”
GM needed a solution that enabled field operators, dealers, servicing agents, investigators, and enforcement officials to quickly and easily spot genuine parts from fake ones.
GM Europe (GME) has a global network of thousands of suppliers that produce and distribute auto aftermarket parts to service its European product lines. GME’s suppliers funnel spare parts to distribution centers and warehouses before reaching dealers and shops for sales and service. The goal of GME’s brand protection program is to authenticate an annual volume of 100 million parts coming from GME’s vast supplier network as “Genuine GM Parts”. A solution is required that would enable field operators, dealers, servicing agents, investigators, and enforcement officials to quickly and easily spot genuine parts from fake ones.
OpSec designed a solution to meet three key requirements – parts identification, anti-counterfeiting, and order tracking. OpSec developed a security label that consolidated variable GM parts data with anti-counterfeiting technology and serialization for itemized tracking. The novel solution design met the three-fold requirements in a single label construction. As a result, the label was easy to integrate into the supply chain process.
GME’s security label enables all the parties across its supply chain network to easily confirm the authenticity of original parts. GME is able to ensure only authentic goods are delivered and sold to authorized dealers.
Since the inception of the brand protection program, GME has yet to find a counterfeit part infiltrating its supply chain with a genuine label. The online tracking component gives GME visibility into their complex supply chain operations. The ability to track parts back to each supplier puts security checks in place that deter grey market diversion. GME has also controlled the infiltration of counterfeits within legitimate channels and given its suppliers the ability to operate in a market nearly free of illegal competition.
