Global GLN Registry (Global Location Numbers)
Location numbers are the GS1 standard that allows for identifying in a single, universal, clear manner any location, either physical or virtual.
International trade is increasingly developing, therefore, using this standard is getting more important for the identification of distribution centers, warehouses or e-commerce boxes. Similarly, safety is gaining more importance in the health sector, and all the relevant locations inherent in its processes are being clearly identified: drugstores, surgery rooms, offices.
This project seeks to establish a single repository of this type of codes, in which you can find each of them along with the relevant information. Thus, your business partners may use it as a basis to process the information that guides their shipment to a destination or the medicines to a patient in the health sector.
Whenever these codes are used, the information systems will validate the delivery of the shipment in a distribution center, while the medicine supply will be supported by system-based validation with the medical staff on the drug that is planned to be administered to a given patient.
