Inventory Management

Industry Inventory Management Initiative



Working together in Rail

The ARA is working with GS1 Australia and participating organisations on a rail industry inventory management program aimed at reducing costs and improving the quality of materials management processes.

Standardising the way materials in the rail industry supply chain are identified and marked will bring industry wide efficiencies for all stakeholders. It will provide the critical foundation for electronic data capture and the ability to simplify the exchange of information across operators, manufacturers, suppliers and contractors. The ARA has established a working group involving operators and suppliers who have agreed to a collaborative industry approach to improving inbound supply chain processes.

You can find out more about the program here and further information on the GS1 approach to standards can be found in the following video:
