Session Description
Megan Baumer, the Business Development Director for eCommerce at GS1 US. She’s on a mission to champion the importance of data standards in the retail supply chain. With experience in product manufacturing, sales, and the non-profit sector, Megan’s insights are invaluable. At the World Freight Summit 2023, she’ll share her strategies for navigating the digital landscape through global data standards. Join us in this blog as we uncover the future of global trade through standardized data exchange.

Megan Baumer will be sharing her insights on the significance of using standardized data in the dynamic world of global trade, where it will be like a common language that streamlines and accelerates business operations. She will highlight how various programs, such as the US Customs and Border Protection’s Global Business Identifier, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission’s e-filing initiative, and the Federal Maritime Commission’s Maritime Transportation Data Initiative, will be transforming the trade landscape. While these initiatives may have started as experiments, they are set to play a pivotal role in the future of global trade by making it safer, more efficient, and increasingly transparent.
