If food waste were a country, only China and the US would emit more CO2. In Norway, supermarket chain Meny has saved 18 percent of food waste costs on fresh meat by using smart barcodes.
In common parlance, many people know the GTIN as a barcode, but technically the GTIN is the number below the barcode symbol itself, and can therefore also be used for other technologies such as 2D barcodes and RFID tags.
Create efficiency and coherence in your everyday life with our advantageous services. All our services are based on the identification numbers you already have through your membership if you have purchased a GTIN and/or GLN subscription.
You can choose one or multiple services and combine them to cover your particular needs. Ultimately, it's about creating value and coherence for your business - easily and conveniently.
A Global Location Number (GLN) makes it possible to uniquely identify physical, functional, or legal entities. This could for instance be a sender, a recipient, or a buyer. This allows you to quickly and efficiently identify the who and where in your business processes. A GLN is unique and can be used across national borders and industries.
It is the owner of a GLN who is responsible for informing e.g. a trading partner about the GLNs used and the information associated with each GLN. This could for instance be a phone number, an address, a fax, or and e-mail.
A Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) is a global ID for your trade items, making it possible for a company in any country to identify which items they are selling in their store. It is used by companies, researchers and retailers to look up product information about the individual product.
Product data can for instance be shared using GS1Trade Sync, where suppliers can enter all their product information. Because a GTIN is a standard, it is a number that can be used anywhere in the world and function as a key when a product has to change hands.
