IMPORTANT! Giant Eagle is now requiring the Case GTIN for warehouse items!
All Warehouse New Item or Shipper submissions must include the GTIN if that barcode type is printed on the external case. The GTIN is a 13 digit code with a check digit in the 14th position. As with all barcode submissions, the check digit should not be included on the submission form. The first digit is in the range of 1-9.
Previously, we requested that Warehouse New Item/Shipper submissions contain a UPC representation of the case barcode. This may have meant that submissions would truncate a GTIN to remove the leading digit (1-9) and any leading zeros. Discontinue this process and include any leading digits.
GTIN is not required for Cross dock /SPTS or DSD submissions. Case UPC should still be entered if that barcode type is printed on the external case. Include a barcode image or specifications sheet with all submissions to ensure accuracy.
Commitment to Data Integrity
High quality vendors, products and data are building blocks for success. Our New Vendor and New Item forms are designed to facilitate complete and accurate information. Incorrect information delays order entry, receiving and timely payment. Forms submitted with missing or incorrect information will be returned to you without Giant Eagle processing. When you complete any of these forms, email them to your Giant Eagle Category Team Member.
Always ensure that the UPC code is correct and in the correct format. Never include the check digit. The UPC code is an integral piece of data and drives many Giant Eagle information systems. An incorrect UPC code impacts every facet of our relationship, from ordering to vendor payment to customer purchase. UPC samples and product samples are required for new items.
If you have questions about the forms, reach out to your Category Team Member.
