Interoperability in Transport & Logistics on 7 November 2013

Nowadays, many different players may take part in the transport of goods between a seller and a buyer. To optimize the management and reduce the costs of these complex and increasingly global supply chains, logistics service providers, freight transporters and their customers need to know exactly where their shipments are, at any moment.

That’s where GS1 can help. The GS1 System of Standards enables real-time, end-to-end visibility over the entire supply chain. Companies can know exactly where things are at any point in time, where they have been before, and why.

GS1 provides a standardised way to identify items and locations, to capture details about supply chain movements, and to share that information with authorised business partners. Furthermore, the GS1 System of Standards is a neutral global framework that ensures interoperability among all stakeholders.

Join us at the industry briefing to learn more about the progress that has been made over the past years to develop components of the GS1 System to support the growing Transport & Logistics industry and implementation opportunities. 

Who should attend?
