Serial Shipping Container Code

Want your transport unit to arrive at its destination?

Pallets and other transport units are required to be labelled with a GS1 logistics label. Each shipping container, transport unit or pallet is identified with a unique tracking number called a Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC). 

The SSCC is an 18-digit number that is unique for each unit. By having a SSCC on your transport unit, will help it get to its destination and you can track where it is along the way.
