Data beyond the GDSN
While we're major proponents of all your items living within the GDSN, your distributors will require additional information beyond product details that the GDSN stores.
Some of these might be:
- Logistical information
- Shipping location
- Time to delivery
- Internal food and ingredient standards
- Product attributes that don't exist in the GDSN
If your item is in the GDSN, the associated GTIN will allow us to pre-populate that information for your trading partner. But for trading partners to fully set up an item in their system, we recommend completing all new item requests as soon as possible.
