How do Barcodes for Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC-18) work?

  Serialized Master Carton Codes (also known as SSCC-18) appear as lines (bars) of varying widths representing the series of numbers commonly shown below the bars.

Barcode scanners read the bars and convert them back to the 18-digit Serialized Master Carton Code that they represent.

When you reach an agreement with a retailer to carry your product(s), they request the information required by their unique proprietary sales and inventory tracking systems.

Your 18-digit Serialized Master Carton Code, when scanned, identifies a specific container of goods of your company.
 
 

How are Serialized Shipping Container Codes (SSCC-18) different from “plain” Shipping Container Codes (SCC-14)?

  Both codes identify your cases, cartons, pallets, or other logistic units. The primary difference between them is that the SSCC-18 gives you more flexibility to track each individual pallet or case by allowing you to create and change the unique serial number. Let’s look at an example:

Let’s say that you ship pallets of oatmeal to Target and also to Costco…

SCC-14 Barcodes SSCC-18 Barcodes


Serialized Shipping Container Codes

You could either put a SCC-14 barcode on these pallets which would be the same for each shipment regardless of when it was shipped or to whom. If you, your retailer, or distributor do not care to track each pallet that would be sufficient.


Shipping Container Codes

The other way would be to put a different SSCC-18 barcode on each and every pallet that you ship out. Using the unique serial number, the extra digits that make the SSCC-18 different, you assign each pallet to be shipped a different ID number within the code. This allows you, your retailer, or distributor to differentiate today’s pallet of oatmeal shipped to Target from yesterday’s pallet of oatmeal shipped to Costco.
