Logistic labels and SSCCs


Logistic labels and SSCCs


GS1 identification and barcode standards ensure the accurate tracking of logistic units throughout the supply chain. If you have a pallet, roll-cage or any other item that you and your customers require visibility on, the Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC) will uniquely identify the unit, ensuring the flow of products is coupled with the flow of data.

This virtual course will ensure you get your SSCCs and logistic labels right, helping you to meet you customer requirements and improving your supply chain traceability to boot.

Who should attend?

The course is suitable for anyone who requires a basic to intermediate understanding of how to correctly logistic units, no matter what industry you work in. It's also useful if you're a supplier or manufacturer and you are experiencing labelling issues with your customers or don't understand their requirements.
