Data integrity critical for future of retail 2021-03-04T04:12:10Z data-integrity-critical-for-future-of-retail-1 GS1 Australia and KPMG Australia have published a Thought Leadership report, Unlocking the Value of Tomorrow’s Retail, highlighting the importance of master data in the future of retail supply chains.The new 16-page report outlines how quality, aligned master data enables the capabilities for businesses to thrive in retail’s age of information. Master data is defined as the attributes of an organisation’s products, customers and suppliers, and is a core part of business operations, providing essential information, and serving as an enabler of efficiency across many aspects of business, often in the shadows of business operation.“In tomorrow’s retail, where personalisation, speed to market and omni channel supply chains are increasingly necessary to compete, manufacturers and retailers will find increasing value in having the data integrity to enable these capabilities.”“Today there are more advanced systems in place, but there is still an underlying issue around data integrity. If your data is not good quality or incorrect, it doesn’t matter how efficient the mechanism is that you have to receive it, incorrect data is going to cause issues for everyone in downstream processes,” said Andrew Steele, Director of Retail, GS1 Australia.“The role of GS1 as we see it, is to provide open global data standards that can be used by all industry stakeholders. One person might call it a barcode number and somebody else a product number. You need to bring standardisation to the mainly conventional data fields to make it easier for people to look at. It needs to be consistent.”Quality control of products is becoming more important as the number of data fields a supplier provides to retailers has grown significantly, according to Andrew Steele GS1 Retail Director. There is no better driver of this data being important than the current COVID-19 situation. People spent a lot of time online, which offers up a good example of why quality master data is important because consumers are not physically in the store and they cannot hold the product in their hand and cannot read the product description, nutritional data, allergen declarations, and other relevant product information. Ashley Alfs, co-author of the report and seasoned supply chain practitioner, says she finds, “most businesses look for quick fixes to their problems through technology upgrades or re-orgs, but neglect the importance and value of ongoing and robust master data management (MDM). So many of the problems organisations face could be fixed or minimised by focusing on better MDM practices.”The shifting landscape of the retail industry has amplified the role master data plays and the value it can unlock. Businesses that neglect their master data will realise only after it’s too late, that quality data is no longer a competitive advantage, but an expectation.Download the report endsAbout GS1 AustraliaGS1 is a neutral, not-for-profit organisation that develops and maintains the most widely used global standards for efficient business communication.

MSC Ends "ANASTASIA" Cargo Ship Ordeal With Crew Change in Japan 2021-02-09T12:13:31Z msc-ends-anastasia-cargo-ship-ordeal-with-crew-change-in-japan-1      - Humanitarian crisis averted as MSC arranges relief for seafarers stuck off China's coast since September- Bulk carrier ANASTASIA's crew to disembark on 10 February in Japan, before ship resumes service- MSC will continue to monitor seafarers' health and well-being while arranging repatriation GENEVA, SWITZ / ACCESSWIRE, Feb 9, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - Following months of repeated appeals by MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company to allow a change of crew on ANASTASIA, a cargo ship which had been stuck off the coast of China since September, MSC has effectively resolved the matter, avoided a humanitarian crisis onboard and mitigated the related safety risks.MSC, which maintains the vessel and organises its crew, having exhausted all possible options for crew change including efforts at a diplomatic level between Indian and Chinese authorities, was left with no other option but to advise the master of ANASTASIA to make a short hop to Japan on 4 February after already grave concerns for the safety and well-being of the seafarers intensified.Dozens of ships have been stuck off the coast of China in recent months amid a trade dispute, which has created uncertainty over whether cargo merchants could deliver coal to buyers in China. MSC understands that the company which initially chartered ANASTASIA from MSC had sub-chartered the vessel to a third party and that the commercial parties involved in the selling and buying of the cargo onboard were caught in the ensuing political uncertainty around the trade issue.MSC tried to convince the chartering and commercial parties in control of the vessel and its cargo to allow a crew change in various locations before it arrived in Chinese waters, and again while it was at anchorage outside the Chinese Port of Caofeidian, although COVID-19 protective measures closed off many options in China which would normally have been available. MSC prioritised the Japanese option as the quickest and most efficient way to provide the necessary relief for the crew and to enable the ship to subsequently continue in service as it may be required by the charterers.MSC is pleased to note that the Chinese and Indian governments seem, according to official remarks reported by media since the vessel left for Japan, to have endorsed a crew change on ANASTASIA.People and Families FirstMSC believes that those in control in similar situations should work to prioritise the well-being of seafarers and their families above commercial interests, as human suffering and lives are at stake.As a result of MSC's action, 18 seafarers, mostly of Indian nationality, will disembark from ANASTASIA on 10 February 2021 and will undergo thorough medical examinations before being repatriated by MSC to reunite with their families as soon as possible. MSC will continue to monitor their physical and mental health.The priority now is to get them home. However, they will continue to be subject to applicable COVID-19 precautions as required by authorities in Japan and in their home countries.Global Crew-Change CrisisWhile MSC observes and supports COVID-19 health and sanitation requirements wherever it operates, the impact of restrictions on crew changes has taken its toll on hundreds of thousands of seafarers globally, throughout the pandemic crisis.Since the spread of COVID-19 worldwide, MSC has engaged directly with governments and intergovernmental bodies, as well as non-governmental organisations, to campaign for better standards and protocols for crew changes.

Previously, Bridgestone Japan shipped OTR tyres to Fremantle which were then transported by customers to their respective sites in the Pilbara. With the new direct freight service, truck movements between Fremantle and the Pilbara will be reduced. The milestone shipment includes a range of Bridgestone OTR tyres from 24 to 63 inches in diameter. After clearance, the tyres will be stored at the BMSA Pilbara Mining Solution Centre (PMSC) in Wedgefield. Roger Johnston, Pilbara Ports Authority Chief Executive Officer also added, “Pilbara Ports Authority (PPA) is pleased to be facilitating direct freight shipments as a result of upgrades to our port’s biosecurity facilities.” PPA’s biosecurity certification gives importers certainty that a wider range of products, including containerised cargo such as tyres, can now enter Australia through the Port of Port Hedland. About BMSA BMSA support industries across the country through a unique business model combining products, maintenance and services. The PMSC is the first mining solution centre in the world to be certified by Bridgestone Japan.  Opened in 2017, the PMSC was based on the concept of “Pit to Port,” supplying products used in these facilities such as tyres, hydraulic hoses and conveyor belts as well as providing related services on a one-stop basis.
