Cash Visibility (CV) is a multi-year, multi-phase joint industry initiative aimed at bringing greater transparency and efficiency to cash supply chain logistics by developing a framework that will identify, track, and share data about cash packages as they move between cash supply chain organizations.
Using supply chain logistics standards and concepts, the Federal Reserve Banks and GS1 US developed CV data standards (Off-site) that will incorporate the use of scanning technologies with cash shipments to enable significant improvements in cash handling. These improvements will reduce manual data entry by replacing paper-based manifests with electronic manifests.
