A guide to barcode symbology for the logistics industry

Barcodes are machine readable symbols that store identifying data about the package or item with which they are associated. These symbols, when read by a barcode scanner, are decoded, recorded, and processed to extract the data for a variety of uses (e.g., pricing, order fulfillment, traceability through production, sortation, shipping, etc.)

This guide will familiarize you with barcodes commonly used to overcome logistical challenges faced by organizations that manufacture, buy, sell and distribute products.  You’ll see how barcodes help collect data faster and more reliably, improve decision making, eliminate the possibility of human error, reduce employee training time and track products throughout their lifecycle.
