A Brief History of the Barcode

In today’s society, we have become comfortable with the presence of Universal Product Codes, also referred to as UPC’s, on all of our favorite products.  Upon entering a grocery store or a retail outlet, we almost expect to see each one marked with the all too familiar black and white lines that help track sales, inventory, and hold other details unique to that particular product.  Most of us understand the current uses for barcodes, but they weren’t always a commonly used technology, and the history behind this efficient innovation is a story in itself.  This week’s newsletter will focus on some little know, yet highly fascinating facts about the historical timeline of the barcode.
1.     The First Barcodes we’re used on Rail Road Cars – Contrary to popular belief, barcodes we’re not invented to track items in grocery stores.  Instead, the first bar codes used we’re to track railroad cars in transit.
2.     Wrigley’s Gum was the First Product to be Scanned Using a Barcode – This happened on June 26th, 1974.  After years of research, and a successful testing phase, the rollout happened successfully at Marsh’s Supermarket in Troy, Ohio, scanning a pack of Juicy Fruit gum. The pack of gum and the receipt are now on display in the Smithsonian Institution.
3.     Some 200 Grocery Stores Adapt Barcodes by 1977 – After the successful trial run, more tests we’re underwent, then offered to grocery store chains for widespread use.  The innovation was met with skepticism, with only 200 stores actually utilizing the technology.  However, 5 weeks after installing barcode scanners sales in grocery stores typically started climbing and eventually leveled off at a 10-12% increase in sales that never dropped off.
4.     Barcodes and Department of Defense – In 1981 the United States Department of Defense adopted the use of Code 39 for marking all products sold to the United States military.  The DOD’s usage of barcodes greatly increased the larger adoption of this practice, particularly in industrial uses.
5.     Today, Barcodes are Everywhere – The once rare barcode is now used to track everything from products, goods, and people to a variety of items like rental cars, mail, parcels, tickets, etc…
We at Quality UPC love the technological innovations that barcodes have provided and believe there here to stay.  Until, that is, a more innovative and effective technology arises, which we know will happen.  It’s only a question of when.
