Efficiency of distribution processes is one of the key factors influencing the optimization of the entire supply chain. For this reason, both research and business practice initiatives point to the need for continuous search for solutions that will improve distribution efficiency both at the operational level and in terms of the entire supply chain. An effective way to optimize distribution processes is to use a standard logistics labels, which enables the integration of information flow between business partners. Institute of Logistics and Warehousing together with GS1 Poland for over 10 years has been researching the level of use and practical implementations of standard logistics labels GS1 in companies. As part of its research work, the Poznan School of Logistics conducts analyses of the scope of evaluation of the distribution process efficiency as key components in the aspect of intelligent supply chains. Cooperation between these institutions allows to achieve the synergy effect, which Authors wish to present within the framework of this paper. The aim of the paper is to analyze the level of use of logistic labels and to analyze the impact of their use on the supply chain efficiency. Scientific and practical research was carried out in 2017-2018 and provides a research basis for further analysis of the impact of logistical labels on the digitisation of supply chains.
Key words: distribution efficiency, supply chain efficiency, logistics label
