Standards

Standards that Identify

Barcode Numbers

Every item of the Global Supply Chain needs to be uniquely identified, and we use Barcode Numbers to do that

Location Numbers

When a business uses multiple locations, tracking their goods can get complicated; that’s where Global Location Numbers come in.

Logistics Numbers

Pallets and logistics units are how goods get shipped around the world, and we use Logistics Numbers to identify them in-transit.

Standards to Capture

Barcodes

Once Barcode Numbers are allocated, a scanner needs a way to capture and understand what the item is in front of it. That’s where Barcodes come in.

Radio Frequency Identification

Traditional scanning isn’t always possible, so Radio Frequency Identification creates an automated solution for barcoding

Standards for Sharing

Product Data

In a digital world, consumers need to be able to trust that what is on the digital shelf matches what’s delivered. That’s where GS1’s Product Data standards come in.
