With an SSCC you code a shipment. This way you can trace everything that is on its way in the chain. This can be a package, but also a suitcase or a cargo ship. As soon as a shipment is received and booked, the SSCC code expires.

Coding shipments

The codes only become meaningful when you assign them to something. This number belongs to this box, this pakcage of this trolley.

Scanning codes?

Sometimes it's useful if the code is also scannable. Then you can translate the number into a barcode. Read all about barcode symbols.
