Data Sharing


GS1 standards allow companies and trading partners to use a "common language" to identify items, capture information throughout the supply chain and then to share that information globally. The use of GS1 standards provides answers to the what, where, when, and why of a specific product's movement through the supply chain, enabling true source-to-store visibility.

GS1 standards enable collaboration between trading partners, facilitate an optimised supply chain and more efficient business processes that reduce human error and cut costs.

The three elements of GS1 Data Exchange are: Master Data exchange with Data Synchronisation, Transactional Data exchange with Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and Physical Event Data sharing with EPCIS (Electronic Product Code Information Services).
