How to barcode your product
GS1 is the most widely used system globally at point of sale and in the supply chain. Adopting the universal standard helps you to get products to your business partners and consumers in an efficient, fast and safe way.
Understanding Global Trade Item Numbers
GTIN is the first term that newcomers to barcode creation need to understand. It is commonly confused with barcodes, though barcodes are created using GTINs.
It is a globally unique 14-digit number used to identify trade items, products, or services. GTINs distinguish items in any database and reveal the relevant information about the item.
STILL & SSCC: Labeling Logistic Units
The Standard International Logistic Label (STILL) aims to replace confusing and repetitive labelling with a standard data structure, label design, and label placement standard. It is used to establish best practice in logistical unit labelling around the world, and the only requirement is that each logistic unit must be identified with a unique serial number, or Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC).
