GS1 in practice

Trade Item Information

GS1 Trade Item Information is a solution for electronically exchanging information on items, such as their dimensions, weight, article number and shelf life.

Items with variable weight

This information is for companies who want to number and barcode items with variable weight, for example meat, fish, cheese, fruit and vegetables.

Barcode labelling

GS1’s barcodes enable the fast and secure transfer of information from objects to computers. They are used globally to mark packages, for example. The barcode must be readable and of high quality.
