Cotton has formed a technology alliance.

Several companies have joined to form a committee tasked with forming data standards that we can all share. This is a huge step forward in the industry's effort to create more efficiency throughout the supply chain.

Three Rivers will implement these standards immediately in order to create easy ways for you to share data with your customers and service providers.

Data standards are smart. Its very exciting that our industry is taking this step. Regardless of where technology takes us, this first step is going to make it much easier for us to take that journey together.

Initial Members of the Alliance:
EWR Inc.
Louis Dreyfus Company
Mallory Group
The Seam
Three Rivers Cotton Systems
USDA AMS Cotton and Tobacco Program
Wakefield Inspection Services
