What is a Barcode?

Barcodes are symbols that can be scanned electronically using laser or camera based systems to read numbers or data. They are used to encode information such as product numbers, serial numbers and batch numbers. Barcodes enable businesses to identify and track products as they move through the supply chain.

Global Trade Item Number (GTIN)

A GTIN is a globally unique GS1 identification number and is the number part of the barcode. It can be allocated to any product or service that can be priced, ordered or invoiced in the supply chain. 

A GTIN consists of:

  • Your global company prefix (allocated to you by GS1)
  • An item number (allocated by you to each product variant)
  • A check digit
