Dispatch Labels & Delivery Notes

Many retailers require GS128 compliant dispatch labels for all palatalized shipments with 100 x 150mm Hybrid Pallet Labels printed for all outbound shipments.

The SSCC Label (Serial Shipping Container Code) provides an accurate and simple method for producers to ship merchandize and relate the product type (GTIN), quantities and lot numbers to the receiver, via a single GS1 Bar-code.

The V5 System enables finished products to be associated with the relevant sales order and routes (by downloading from your existing sales order system or utilizing the V5’s own internal Sales Order Processing Software).

This style of SSCC label meets the requirements laid out by the PTI and global standards in many countries (GS1).

Each label can contain up to 4 horizontal GS1 Bar-codes. Each GS1 Bar-code contains GTIN, QTY & Lot Number of the products shipped. Each time a change is made to a lot number on a consignment, or even a product type, a new bar-code will be produced.

The horizontal GS1 Barcode gives reference to any EDI (Electronic Data Interface) & ASN (Advanced Shipping Notice) which is present. If you do not use EDI or ASN, no vertical GS1 Barcode will be printed.  Further detail on Global Standards can be found here.

In addition to the automatic generation of a hybrid pallet label, a Delivery Note can be printer automatically.  The delivery note provides a complete listing of all the finished product lot numbers contained on the delivery (across all pallets).
