Logistic labels and ASN


Logistic labels help improve the goods delivery and receiving process to bring greater efficiency and cost savings to all parties in the supply chain. However, when these labels are implemented incorrectly, understanding which goods and how many are about to arrive, resolving delivery and receiving errors and reconciling deliveries against orders and invoices becomes very time consuming and costly.

This interactive workshop will enable you to produce logistic labels that are aligned with your customers’ requirements. It will also explain how suppliers can utilise Advanced Shipping Notifications (ASNs) to provide better visibility and validation of orders, deliveries and invoices.

Attendees will come away with an understanding of industry best practice, which has been developed through GS1 UK’s work with Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Waitrose, Heinz, Mondelez, Nestle, Unilever and other leading retail and foodservice organisations.
