LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ (September 27, 2011 - PRWEB)—Shamrock Foods Company is the first recipient of the new 1SYNC PaceSetter Award. The seventh-largest broadline foodservice distributor in the U.S. was honored for its “rapid implementation and superior execution of GS1 standards and Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) for complete and accurate data,” 1SYNC said.
Shamrock is now retrieving product information on thousands of foodservice items through the GDSN.
“To provide your customers with the best service possible, and to keep your purchasing, operations and transportation processes running efficiently, you have to have world class information on your products. This is an area we’ve always prided ourselves on, and our use of 1SYNC has taken us to the next level of excellence,” said Kent McClelland, COO of Shamrock Foods.
A week ago, Shamrock started shipping out of its new Eastvale, Calif., warehouse. Lupe Gutierrez, Shamrock’s Financial Services Asst. Controller and project lead for GDSN, credited the system with improving the warehouse’s ease of setup and industry-leading layout, because data such as accurate pallet information helped Shamrock staff rack it optimally for the best use of space.
