Benefits of GS1 Standards

In a world of increasing complex data, GS1 System of Standards help companies single out what really matters to them. They provide a common language to identify, capture and share supply chain data, to ensure important information is accessible, accurate and easy to understand.

Identify

GS1 Identification Keys are used to uniquely distinguish trade items (e.g. by GTIN), logistic units (e.g. by SSCC), locations (e.g. by GLN) and assets (e.g. by GRAI) throughout the supply chain.

Capture

GS1 barcodes (including GS1 EAN/UPC, GS1-128, ITF-14, GS1 DataBar, GS1 DataMatrix, GS1 QR Code etc.) and EPC-enabled Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags carry information, including GS1 Identification Keys, about products and locations. They can also include additional information such as product batch/lot number, expiry dates etc for food traceability and safety.
