GS1-compliant labelling solutions for ID-in-RAIL

The global GS1 standard for normalising the labelling of safety-relevant subassemblies and components 

SBB (Swiss Federal Railways) and other international rail operators have decided to implement standardised labelling. This guarantees a transparent flow of materials and information throughout their entire life-cycles, including production, storage, installation, operation and repairs.

This standardised labelling of subassemblies and components is based on the global, rail-specific GS1 standard. The globally established standard offers a lot of potential for rail operators, component manufacturers, system developers and end-customers. It brings benefits and more safety to processes, especially in the fields of maintenance, repairs and operations (MRO).

Profit from the experience and knowledge of a successful RFID/NFC specialist. smart-TEC supports you in all matters of ID-in-RAIL, RFID and 2D codes. We offer labelling solutions suited to every area, application and environment. Materials, AUTO-ID-technology, size, attachment type and printing are all adapted to each customer’s requirements.
