Uniquely identify reusable carriers with a GRAI
A Global Returnable Asset Identifier (GRAI) is used to uniquely and unambiguously identify reusable product carriers. Palettes, crates and barrels are examples of reusable carriers. A GRAI is assigned by the owner of the carrier.
Structure of a GRAI
|GS1 Company Prefix||Asset No||Check digit||Serial number|
Consult the GS1 Benelux RTI list for an overview of all types of logistics carriers and the GRAIs that the owners of the carriers have already assigned.
Dutch and Belgian/Luxembourgish suppliers and retailers from various sectors have the opportunity to uniquely name their logistics carrier in their EDI messages (ORDERS, DESADV or INVOIC).
