The original conception of 2D barcodes was a commercial application within the car manufacturing supply chain. The Denso-Wave Corporation of Japan created the QR Code format as a means of tracking individual car parts from point of manufacture through to assembly.

The value driver for this mode of operation was the density of data that allowed the compression of parts information to be stamped on to the increasing smaller car parts.

From the car parts supply chain to the B2B value chain, 2D barcodes can be applied to address efficiency and effectiveness challenges of today's business environment.

One example use is Product Identification Data.
