The Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC) is an internationally accepted code applied to boxes, pallets and containers as a barcode. The code serves as unique carrier ID (pallets or boxes). The exchange of information between the supplier and purchaser runs more efficiently when using SSCC labels, due to the information about the goods and packaging that is linked to the code. GS1 is a global organisation that has designed a standard for barcodes, with which besides an item code, supplementary information (such as batch number, storage life date etc.) can be displayed in a barcode.
SSCC and GS1 labels can be interpreted once delivered for shipment.
SSCC follows a number sequence, as agreed with GS1. When printing you use your customer’s number sequence or you use your own number sequence.
