Corporate Compliance and Technology
- GS1 Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN): Suram's retail items are globally synchronized to the GS1 Global Registry®. Implementation of the GDSN ensures that our product information is accurate and correctly classified so that supplier and retailer item specifications match. This technology allows us as the supplier to avoid unnecessary costs being handed down to the consumer by providing greater order accuracy and a smoother supply chain process to the retailer.
- International Compliance Information Exchange (ICIX): Suram Trading Corporation is 100% ICIX compliant. By sharing certification and compliance documentation via ICIX, Suram Trading is able to provide its trading partners with quality assurance, business transparency, and product traceability. We are committed to quality assurance and compliance with our retail trading partners, seafood certification authorities, and government regulatory agencies.
- Electronic Data Interchange (EDI): Suram uses EDI technology which makes it possible for us to exchange real-time electronic data with our trading partners regardless of system or platform. Electronic transaction capabilities include Application Advice, Purchase Orders, Invoices, Warehouse Orders, Functional Acknowledgements, and Advanced Shipment Notifications.
