Logistics label on pallets in the FMCG & Foodservice sector

Products and the pallet that enables them to be transported and stored throughout the chain form a unique combination: the logistics unit.  

Logistics labels are affixed to logistics units with their unique identification code: the Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC).  

That SSCC is in fact a globally unique pallet number. Among other things, it ensures that the different lots of a product can be kept apart in a warehouse based on their best before date.  

If the SSCC is included in the electronic delivery note, the receipt process can be accelerated enormously.
