Case Study: IPC/Subway

IPC/Subway Delivers the Promise of End-to-End Traceability Throughout the Subway System

Standardized product data drives operational efficiencies, reduces supply chain costs

IPC/Subway has been able to quantify $1.3 million in annual cost avoidance by maximizing truckload capacity based on accurate product data enabled by GS1 Standards. By using quality product data, Subway restaurants can improve their inventory management and ensure enhanced food safety practices with faster and more precise responses to product recalls and withdrawals.

"We added GS1 Standards because this results in cost savings for our Franchisees. As a sign of that commitment, we require GS1 Standards usage in our supplier and distributor contracts."
