GS1 identification numbers fall under the Identify category and are used for global, non-conflicting and unique identification. GLNs – Global Location Numbers are used to uniquely identify companies and divisions. GTINs (Global Trade Identification Numbers) are used to uniquely identify products and services and SSCCs (Serial Shipping Container Code) for the unique identification of carriers.

The basis for all numbers in the GS1 identification number system is a GS1 base number. Based on the GS1 base number, the other numbers such as GLN, GTIN or SSCC can then be formed.
