Sojo Industries has released Sojo Shield™, a first-of-its-kind, dock-to-dock software platform that provides immediate and accurate reporting on critical tracking events such as shipping, receiving, and transport. Sojo Shield™ is a blockchain-based, multi-device application for Sojo customers to resolve quality and compliance issues related to production in real time, based on geolocation tracking technology.

The need for improved track and trace management has never been more critical as food and beverage brands and retailers must comply with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) Food Traceability Final Rule by January 2026. The rule will require organizations to maintain records of key data elements (e.g. quantity of food, location, date shipped) associated with critical tracking events, and brands must be able to provide these insights within 24 hours of an FDA request.

Sojo Shield™ empowers organizations to automate data collection and analytical processes to be prepared for food safety incidents.

Sojo Shield™ leverages geolocation technology to track products from the warehouse to retailer, relying on digital scans of QR codes generated by the Sojo Shield™ platform. Customers have a real-time view of product information, pallet locations, and searchable updates. The use of blockchain technology as the ledger of record for these transactions also provides transparency and security for critical reports while ensuring physical data integrity.
