Where a GLN is used:
GLN is fully compatible with ISO standard 6523.
A GLN in a barcode can help to route products to their destination or capture where they came from. Use of EPC®/RFID (radio frequency technology) and readers identified with GLNs can support automatically capturing the movement of goods without the need for line-of-sight scanning or other manual intervention.
Sharing Information Using Systems and Communications
Sharing information relating to parties and locations using GLN within GS1 Standards like Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and Electronic Product Code Information Services (EPCIS) will enhance transitional data and physical event data.
