Publish the IMPA MSG unique six digit codes alongside your own codes.

Case study

Time is everything: optimising our website with the IMPA codes

In the shipping industry, time is everything, which is why those operating in the maritime supply
chain constantly strive for efficiency. As a leading technical wholesaler, Alligator is no different.

Its inventory of more than 15,000 products is distributed to ship suppliers across the
world from warehouses in Rotterdam, Singapore, Shanghai and Houston.

At the heart of that activity is the company’s website – a site that provides information
and photos of the 15,000 items that Alligator carries. Navigating that inventory could be
a minefield for its customers – but it isn’t. To make life simple, easy and hassle free for
its customers, Alligator lists its products on its site using IMPA’s six-digit MSG codes.

This means that it is quick, easy and clear for customers to find the product they’re
looking for on Alligator’s site, using the IMPA codes – saving them time and money,
and improving efficiency.

“The industry knows and works daily with the IMPA codes,” An Alligator spokesperson
said. “Creating a search function that links our products with their corresponding IMPA
codes on our own website is, in our opinion, the most optimal and efficient way to allow
customers to easily and quickly find our products.”
