The Strategic Sourceror,
Thursday, 02 February 2017


For companies looking to improve logistics, one of their goals could be not just greater visibility, but also stronger collaboration with other businesses.

This idea comes from Supply Chain Quarterly, which recently 
examined the idea of "collaborative technology partnerships" for better sourcing. However, there are multiple ways to approach collaboration in planning, so let's look at three of the processes potentially pointing the way forward.

Importing to China?
What is the China GTIN filing procedure?

Many of our GS1 Members have faced regulatory issues when trying to import and distribute their products in China.

Members are to note that there is a procedure created to address a Chinese Government Regulation that requires the filing of GTINs for all products that are produced and/or distributed within China.

These procedures are designed to allow GS1 Members to leverage their GS1 Company Prefixes throughout the world without restraint. You can
click here to find out more on the background of this procedure.

At GS1 Singapore, we have also instilled some simple procedures to aid our members in this filing process.
  1. Members are first required to send us the full product listing of items to be imported and distributed into China
  2. GS1 Singapore will then endorse a Certificate of Membership (click here for sample) on behalf of the member organisation
  3. Lastly, GS1 Singapore will send both the product listing and Certificate to the GS1 China office for approval
For more information on this procedure, call us at 6826 3077 or email us at
Success in an Omni-Channel World

Article courtesy of:


It is easy to define omni-channel business success by desired outcomes: happy, loyal customers resulting in increased sales and profits. What is considerably more difficult is describing how to get there and making it happen.

From the customer point of view, omni-channel means being the centre of the buying experience.

From the retailer point of view, omni-channel is much more complex. It means implementing a system that produces a consistently positive experience for shoppers and buyers.

The real challenge is making this all happen efficiently. It requires a thoughtful plan.

The purpose of this white paper is to provide a structure for that plan — a high level description of the steps necessary for meeting the expectations of today’s omni-channel customer.
