GS1 standards create a common foundation for business by uniquely identifying, accurately capturing and automatically sharing vital information about products, locations, assets and more. Businesses can also combine different GS1 standards to streamline business processes such as traceability, through the use of Global Trade Item Numbers (GTINs), Global Location Numbers (GLNs) and GS1-128 barcodes.
