The Perfect Order programme working group

See who’s working on the programme – and how to get involved

The Perfect Order working group was set up to address industry issues across the order-to-cash process. The goal was to create a set of industry-approved guidelines for the consistent application of GS1 standards across the retail grocery supply chain.

The group published its first set of industry guidelines in November 2016 - setting out the minimum requirements for in-bound logistics for retailers and suppliers. GS1 UK facilitates the group, which is co-chaired by Giles Enderby of Procter & Gamble and Robert Nee of Morrisons Supermarkets.

The goal of the perfect order – to eliminate all manual intervention by suppliers and retailers – will not be achieved overnight. But we believe it is fundamental to improving the retail grocery supply chain. By creating consistency in working practices, adopting the consistent use of standards and improving the quality of data we believe the perfect order programme will be a step-change for the UK retail grocery sector.”
