Objective of group
A global industry workgroup, including members from Australian transport companies AusPost, DHL and VT Freight Express, developed new Application Identifiers (AI).
These identifiers are for encoding transport data on the logistics label. They also developed a new Implementation Guideline which leverages the GS1 Digital Link standard within a 2D barcode on the logistics label. These standards focus on improving efficiency, interoperability and visibility across the transport process, particularly in last mile activities.
The group had broad representation and support from shippers, logistic service providers, solution providers and GS1 member organisations from more than 22 countries around the world. It promises to bring improved efficiencies across the sector.
