Initial situation

Clear labeling in the railroad sector is becoming increasingly important. Whether logistics, maintenance or procurement – a large number of processes can be optimized and made more secure by the unique identification of spare parts and assemblies. For this reason, many rail operators such as Deutsche Bahn, SBB, SNCF and Australian Railways have agreed on standardized labeling based on GS1 standards and have laid this down in a global application recommendation. This labeling is the basis for the mobile process support provided by the oneIDentity+ service platform, which holds a multitude of potentials for processes in the railroad industry.

Partner & Network

The international network “Global Standards One” (GS1) consists of over 11ß country organizations. This global network is orchestrated by GS1 Global, based in Brussels. This is where the guidelines are set for the content-related and strategic shaping of core topics and where links to international institutions are maintained. The fight against product piracy and the digitalization of value creation processes involving a wide range of stakeholders such as manufacturers, logistics, retailers and end customers are the focus of current activities in the GS1 network. oneIDentity+ works closely with GS1 Global in many areas in order to have a direct contact and sparring partner for the design of relevant use cases, especially in cross-national topics.

GS1 Germany supports companies in all industries in applying modern communication and process standards in practice. This significantly improves the efficiency of their business processes.
