Logistics permeates the entire supply chain, which involves many business entities such as suppliers, manufacturers, distributors and retailers. All of these entities will work together to change raw materials and transform them into the final product.
Halal logistics is the process of managing the material flow and information flow throughout the supply chain in accordance to a halal standard. The material flow covers the transport, storage and terminal operations. The information flow covers the management of the data in the supply chain, such as product information, demand data, and halal logistics label and code. Halal logistics is a system based on segregation instead of detection. Halal products are segregated from non-halal products to avoid cross-contamination so as to ensure that the halal integrity of the product is preserved before they reach the Muslim consumer.
Halal logistics is an approach to avoid contamination of perishable, raw materials and food products during transportation or distribution activities. It is also to avoid any missing information on products and to ensure that Muslim consumers will receive and consume only the Halalan Toyibban products.
