GS1 Australia provide data carriers designed to represent all identification numbers used in the GS1 system. These commonly come in the form of barcode symbols as a means of representing data in machine readable form, allowing automatic data capture at each point where an item enters or leaves premises.
Data carriers from GS1 Australia feature improvements in the technology as well as new application requirements. New data carriers such as GS1 DataBar, Data Matrix and RFID have been introduced.
For the general distribution environment of a warehouse, all symbols can be used, such as:
- EAN UPC
- ITF-14 barcodes
- GS1 DataBar (formerly RSS)
- Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)
