Unique marking in the railway industry is gaining in importance. Be it logistics, maintenance or procurement – a multitude of processes can be optimised and designed more securely with the unique identification of spare parts and assemblies. For this reason, many railway operators such as Deutsche Bahn, SBB, SNCF and Australian Railways have agreed upon standardised marking based on GS1 standards and documented this in a global recommendation for use. This marking is the foundation for the mobile process support via the oneIDentity+ service platform which holds a lot of potential for the processes in the railway industry.
