Serial Shipping Container Code
Abbreviated SSCCOrder now!
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.
What can you do with an SSCC?
Identifying a parcel
By placing an SSCC on a parcel, you can identify it as a shipment.
Identifying a pallet with parcels
In this case, the pallet receives the shipping code and not all parcels individually.
If you scan the SSCC on entry, the goods are immediately booked in. This saves time and money.
How does it work?
Go to MyGS1 and order your codes.
How many codes do you need?
How many codes you need depends on the number of packages you want to code. See our packages.
The codes only become meaningful when you assign them to something. This number belongs to this box, this pakcage of this trolley.
Sometimes it's useful if the code is also scannable. Then you can translate the number into a barcode. Read all about barcode symbols.
You buy SSCC's in a package starting at 100,000 pieces.
The costs consist of a one-time fee and an annual contribution. The latter covers GS1's organizational and development costs.
