ITF-14 Carton Barcodes
If you need a barcode for the outer delivery carton (for your product), you can purchase one below.
An outer delivery carton barcode is called an ITF-14 Barcode (it is also sometimes called GTIN 14 or TUN). ITF-14 Carton Barcodes are 14-digits long (they are generated from the retail product’s 13-digit EAN13 barcode number or 12-digit UPC-A barcode number).
ITF-14 barcodes go on the outer shipping cartons or delivery boxes that contain your retail products. Each shipping carton should contain a set number of your retail products (e.g. 24 cans of baked beans). ITF-14 barcodes are sometimes called Shipping Container Codes (SCC-14), Carton Codes, or GTIN-14 barcodes. Your retailer will scan the ITF-14 barcode on each shipping carton when it comes into their warehouse. The ITF-14 barcode will tell them how many units of your product are contained in each shipping carton (e.g. 24 cans of baked beans). This information will then be recorded in their inventory management or logistics system so that they can keep track of what stock is in their warehouse. The ITF-14 barcodes are usually created from the barcode number which is on the retail product within the box (the EAN-13 or UPC number). Up to 10 different ITF-14 barcodes can be created from one EAN-13 or UPC number.
If you need ITF-14 Barcodes, please order them below. Please enter your EAN-13 or UPC-A barcode numbers into the “enter your barcode number(s) here” box below before checking out (we will use these numbers to create your ITF-14 barcode images). Once we receive your order, we will manually create the ITF-14 barcode for you, and email it to you. This will normally take 2-24 hours, depending on the time of day/week that you make the order. Our normal office hours are 10am-4pm Mon-Thu (EG time), plus we process some orders on Saturday whenever possible.
ITF-14 Carton Barcode Images
Here you can purchase ITF-14 images. ITF-14 carton code image for the outside of a carton containing a quantity of your retail product. The ITF-14 carton code is a 14 digit number that is based on your 13-digit EAN-13 retail barcode number. Please enter your EAN-13 barcode number into the “barcode number” box when you get to the checkout page – we will use it to create your ITF-14 barcode (note: if you are purchasing an EAN-13 barcode at the same time as an ITF-14 barcode, then please put “N/A” into the “barcode number” box – we will assign an EAN-13 barcode number to you, and then turn that number into your ITF-14 carton code).The ITF-14 carton code will be emailed to you in 4 formats (.jpg, .pdf, .png, .svg).
NOTE 1: ITF-14 barcodes are for use on cartons for shipping, not for retail sale. If your carton is being sold at retail level, you should use an EAN-13 retail barcode on the carton.
NOTE 2: If you want ITF14 barcodes for 12 digit UPC numbers, please add a leading 0 to the UPC numbers when entering them in the ‘additional information’ box.

** One-off fee to get your barcode without any additional annual fee.
*** Each ITF14 must be associated with a EAN13 / UPC-A. One EAN13 / UPC-A can generate up to 10 ITF14 numbers.
**** Now if you buy ITF14 and our EAN13 barcodes together in the same order, ITF14 will be generated from EAN13 automatically. For more details, please contact us.
How to use ITF-14 Carton Barcodes:
You will receive your ITF-14 Carton barcode images via email in 4 different formats (jpeg, svg, png & pdf). You can then print the ITF-14 Code onto your delivery carton.
Note: ITF-14 Codes are only used for the outer shipping containers/cartons containing the retail products, they are not used on retail products themselves (all products for retail sale need EAN barcodes OR UPC barcodes).
Some examples of how to use an ITF-14 barcode:
If you want to supply tins of apricots to retail stores in delivery boxes that contain40 tins each, and these tins are to be sold individually within the retail stores,then you will need:
1) One EAN-13 barcode (eg. ‘0123456789012’) to go onto each of the tins (retail products); and
2) One ITF-14 barcode (generated from your product barcode – ie. ‘10123456789019’) to be printed onto each of the delivery boxes.
If your apricot tins are to be sold in retail stores both as individual tins and as 4-pack lots, then you need to get:
1) Two EAN barcodes (one to go onto the tins that are being sold individually, and the other to go onto the 4-pack tins); and
2) Two ITF-14 carton codes (one generated from each of the EAN barcode numbers). One ITF-14 barcode would be for the delivery boxes that contained the individual tins, the other ITF-14 barcode would be printed onto the delivery boxes that contained the 4-pack lots of tins.
Which ITF-14 Carton Code goes with which EAN-13 barcode?
The easy way to tell which carton code goes with which EAN is to look at your EAN numbers. Ignore the last digit (13th digit) as that is a checksum of all the other numbers. Look at the last 3 digits. You will see they are the same on the EAN as the ITF – just the ITF has a 1 at the front.
For example EAN 0799439079083 has ending checksum digit 3. Ignore this last digit; the barcode ends 908. It’s corresponding ITF would also end 908 and then have a checkdigit added at the end. It has a 1 at the front so it would be 1079943907908x (where x is the checkdigit) and in this case the checkdigit is 0, so the final number is 10799439079080. Note, when our automation produces the barcode images, it includes the checkdigit in the image, but leaves is out of the file name – so in this example, the images would be named 1079943907908.
