Oct 16 05 Package Measurement with GTIN Management Standard Certificate Course

8:30 AM - 3:30 PM (CT)
Chicago, IL
$425.00


Accurate data is an essential component of a visible, secure, and sustainable supply chain. Industry studies have shown that two-thirds of product information shared between trading partners has data accuracy errors. By attending, you will receive information and guidance on interpreting and applying the GS1 Package Measurement Rules for both consumer and non-consumer trade items, which form the foundation for accuracy of physical dimensional data (i.e., weights and dimensions).

You'll also gain an understanding of the GTIN Management Standard, which forms the basis on whether or not a new GTIN needs to be assigned based on changes to an existing product, promotion, or new product introduction. An understanding of the rules is a "must have" for those that manage GTIN assignment to ensure that any scanned barcode can be associated with accurate, up to date, data. 

Fall into Savings: Use discount code 'SAVE100' and save $100 at checkout.
