Project i-TRACE

The rail industry has been working with GS1 Australia to improve its inventory management processes. The industry wants to achieve better control their assets, reduce costs and enhance productivity.

An industry working group including rail operators, manufacturers and contractors has been established to agree a common standard across the industry so parts and components can be tracked along the entire supply chain.

GS1 standard identifiers and data capture technologies including barcoding and RFID tagging will be fundamental components to the desired outcomes.

If you have any questions about this initiative, please call 1300 BARCODE (AEST business hours) or send us an email.
