  2. About Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC)

The SSCC provides a single way of uniquely identifying logistics units to make it simpler to track and trace products through the supply chain. You can also use GS1 standards to provide information about the contents of each logistics unit, which can be used in any trade and industry sector.


The benefits of using SSCCs and the GS1 logistics label include:

  • One label that’s used throughout the supply chain.
  • Improved control procedures in warehousing and distribution.
  • Unique identification for standard and non-standard pallets.
  • Minimized labelling costs through the use of an international standard.
  • Automation and efficient handling of transport units and their contents.
  • Increased speed of processing deliveries.
  • Improved matching of deliveries against invoices.
