Public Policy and Retail

The retail industry is quickly responding to the changing habits of consumers, who switch seamlessly between in-store and e-commerce channels while expecting a consistent shopping experience.

GS1 standards are helping the retail sector integrate store operations, delivery and inventory management to meet the challenges of the new omni-channel marketplace and satisfy the expectations of consumers before, during and after their purchase.

You can leverage our deep experience in the retail industry to solve complex problems such as:

  • Globalisation of the supply chain
  • Providing access to accurate consumer product data and
  • Urban freight congestion and “last mile” delivery issues.
