SmartFreight is Global Data Standards compliant now.


Freight software provider SmartFreight has adopted Global Data Standards (GDS) with an aim to improve freight visibility and supply chain efficiencies.

The move is based on one of the recommendations in Austroads' supply chain visibility report.

Having completed GS1 Australia’s Transport Software Certification process, SmartFreight can now allow users to generate freight labels according to the GS1 global supply chain standards outlined in the Australian Freight Labelling Guideline.

"SmartFreight fully support the Australian Freight Labelling Standards, based on GS1 Open Global Standards," SmartFreight MD Australia and New Zealand Kerry Holmes says.

"The GS1 system is the most widely used supply chain standards system in the world, enabling increased visibility and reduced costs across the supply chain, which ultimately helps all Australians."

 "We are very pleased that SmartFreight have embraced GS1 global supply chain standards and look forward to assisting them and their clients to improve efficiency and freight visibility within their supply chains," GS1 Australia senior advisor trade, transport & heavy industry Michiel Ruighaver says.

GS1 supply chain standards "enable parties across the supply chain to operate more efficiently with improved freight visibility using a common standard for identifying, labelling and sharing data relating to the movement of freight units".

The GS1 Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC) is a globally unique freight unit identifier used to uniquely identify each freight unit from origin to destination.

It can be used to uniquely identify any type of logistic unit including satchels, cartons, crates and pallets.
