SmartFreight adopts Global Data Standards for freight

Australian global freight software provider SmartFreight has adopted the recommendations in Austroads' supply chain visibility report for Australian industry to adopt Global Data Standards to improve freight visibility and supply chain efficiencies.

SmartFreight says it has now successfully completed GS1 Australia’s Transport Software Certification process and users are now able to generate freight labels according to the GS1 global supply chain standards outlined in the Australian Freight Labelling Guideline.

GS1 supply chain standards enable parties across the supply chain to operate more efficiently with improved freight visibility, using a common standard for identifying, labelling and sharing data relating to the movement of freight units. The Serial Shipping Container Code can be used to uniquely identify any type of logistic unit including satchels, cartons, crates and pallets.

The GS1 SSCC is a globally unique freight unit identifier used to uniquely identify each freight unit from origin to destination.

Kerry Holmes, managing director, Australia and New Zealand at SmartFreight said, “SmartFreight fully supports the Australian Freight Labelling Standards, based on GS1 Open Global Standards. The GS1 system is the most widely used supply chain standards system in the world, enabling increased visibility and reduced costs across the supply chain, which ultimately helps all Australians.”

GS1 Australia’s Senior Adviser – Trade, Transport and Heavy Industry, Michiel Ruighaver, said GSI was very pleased that SmartFreight have embraced GS1 global supply chain standards and “look forward to assisting them and their clients to improve efficiency and freight visibility within their supply chains”.

It quickly affected many systems with hackers requiring users to pay money for the decryption keys.
