How to identify locations

Here you learn how you can use GLN to share information about your company.

GLN (Global Location Number) is used to identify a company, location, or legal entity.


If you need more GLN, you can create it by using a GS1 company prefix. In order for your GLN to be traceable to different addresses, you need to connect your company to Directory. Then your business partners can search for the right address linked to your GLN in our Directory enquiry. Your assigned primary GLN is automatically added to the directory enquiry.

If you have ordered GS1 single number, you can only make one GLN.

The service Directory is included in the subscription fee for companies with an annual turnover of up to 3 million SEK.
