The GTIN is an umbrella term that refers to the entire family of UCC.EAN data structures. The GTIN is used within barcodes to help identify a product or shipment. The structure contains a company prefix, an item reference, and a calculated check digit, and depending on the format, can be 8, 12, 13, 14 or 18 digits in length.

The TrueCommerce Labeling Utility can be used to print UCC-128 labels. The barcode of the UCC-128 label contains the SSCC-18 or GTIN-18, and can be configured within Transaction Manager at the Trading Partner level.

To update the Extension, Company #, and/or Next Serial #:

  1. Navigate to the Trading Partner record for the partner you're working with.
  2. In the Action Bar, click Labels and then select UCC-128.

The company prefix or GS1 is typically the first five to nine digits of the item UPCs, and is entered in the Company # field in the screenshot above.

The GLN, or Global Location Number, is part of the GS1. The GLN is administered by GS1.

In this example from GS1-128.info, you can see the structure of the SSCC-18. Once the Company # is added to the Label setup, Transaction Manager will automatically generate the other values, though they can be modified if need be.
