Transport and logistics
GS1 as a logistics partner
Logistics costs are evaluated to account for nearly 15% of the turnover of businesses, making logistics a considerable competitive asset. Supply chains are expected to be punctual and transparent and reduce emissions as much as possible. The digitalising logistics chain is influenced by several standards developed by GS1, making the processes cost-efficient and transparent.
As Finland is highly dependent on foreign trade, efficient logistics are vitally important for industries, trade and consumers. Our remote location and long distances require efficient logistics processes based on digital solutions. Their compatibility is ensured by using international GS1 standards.
Manufacturers, distributors and logistics operators and their customers need real-time information on the movement of shipments, the origins of products and their delivery times. The GS1 standards for individualisation, identification and sharing information enable a transparent supply chain from the source all the way to the end customer. The standards also help enhance the internal processes of businesses, such as warehousing and production.
