Examples of pallet labels

The pallet label must always contain the SSCC for the load on the pallet, but can also contain, for example, GTIN, batch or lot number and dates. Below are three examples of what information can be found on a pallet label if the supplier does not send all information about the pallet in an electronic despatch advice.
