When everyone uses the same standards, it’s easier to get things done. Just imagine if we didn’t have a standard way to measure time or distance. It’s the same with our supply chain standards. They define ways to store and transfer data so organisations can exchangeinformation smoothly. Supply chain standards save time and money by reducing administration and slashing paperwork. Largely unseen, yet tremendously important, GS1 standards ensure key processes run smoothly in the world’s biggest industries.
